Yesterday, I landed at Ontario International Airport, in Ontario, California (not Canada). I walked off the plane with two modestly-sized carry-ons. After retrieving a typically-sized suitcase from baggage claim, I walked to a quiet corner of the airport. In less time than it takes to rent a car, ~15 minutes, I was riding off from the airport with all my luggage and still cruising at 30kph. Better still, I incurred no additional baggage charges like I did in D.C. recently.
Dream realized! What made the difference this time were some recent innovations in bicycle design: my folding Tern Verge X20 and my brand new Burley Travoy. Both performed superbly:
|Prior bike luggage travails:
- The Tern Verge X20
- weighs 9.3kg/20.5lb
- easily cruises at 36km/20mph
- fits in a regular suitcase.
Incredible! Here's a link to my nycewheels review where I gush further.
- The Burley Travoy
- weighs 4.4 kg/9.8 lb
- easily attaches and cruises behind my folding bike
- fits in a regular carry-on bag (included).
