BHF trip on the 15th

Just trying to catch a ride from southwest burb to BHF on the 15th of July. I have no truck to carry my bike and Uhaul is trying to rent me a trailer and a regular truck for unbelievable amount of $$, so if you have extra space for a bike and small guy please let me know. I will pay for fuel and lunch.

I can take you from 59 & 90 if you don't find a closer ride.

No, it's just a gutted Chevy van, I use my own ramps. Farm & Fleet carry the fold-ups ones.
but with two guys and a couple long boards you can get the bike up in the van quite easily. I also use a front chock and 4 straps to keep it all in place.

no prob.

Here's what I use for Putnam:




If you can get your bike to Wink's place then you are set, he's got the setup

Just tell me when I can drop off my bike to your house.
Thanks again for being so helpful.

I can attest to the nice set up that shadrach has...I helped him push his bike in the van at putnam
