Suggestions for transporting a bike to/from Boston?
I'm heading to Boston to visit my parents and brothers memorial day weekend and the week after. I've long since sold my bike at home but my brother and I were hoping to go riding together while I was there. That means I need to find a way to get my bike there. I don't have a car to tow it with (4 cyl Protoge barely tows my fat ass alone). And I'm not thrilled about riding the 1000 miles there because coming back in one day will be near impossible.
My latest and greatest plan was to rent a pickup and drive it out there (having the spare car that week would be nice too). Enterprise quotes me @ $407 for the whole trip, which isn't much more than I'd probably pay for a plane ticket. But now I'm worried about tying it down in the truck bed.
So I have two questions:
1) Are there adequate anchor points in a stock truck bed?
2) Is there a better route for doing this?
