SEP 30 2015


Roll Your Bicycle Onto Amtrak's Capitol Limited With New Bike Service Launched!  News from Amtrak: within the first week of offering the new walk-on bicycle service, over 100 reservations were made! The response astonished Amtrak, but not us.   Amtrak is now offering Walk-On Bicycle Service for all stops on the Capitol Limited. For an extra $20 on top of your ticket price, you can secure your bicycle in a specially equipped baggage car then ride in comfort to the start or end of your bicycle journey.

Because there are only 7 racks per train, make your plans and reservations early. We hope there will be additional racks in the future, but this is a good start. Go here make your Amtrak reservation.   To see how the racks work, see this from the manufacturer . Amtrak has added a velcro strap on the stabilizing arm for easy attachment to your bicycle frame.


The Great Allegheny Passage ® (GAP) rail-trail offers 150 miles of hiking and biking from Cumberland MD to Pittsburgh,PA.
