Regarding sharing a ride, what day and approximate time do you arrive at the airport?

I'm very interested in sharing a ride back to the airport on Friday.
No matter how long the hill, if you keep pedaling you'll eventually get up to the top.

What happens with your bike if you're flying home?

My bike comes apart and fits into a large suitcase that I check on the plane for $25.

I'll be happy to demonstrate how this works to anyone interested.

I am very interested in sharing a taxi ride back to the airport on Friday from the conference.
My flight leaves at 5:45, but I have to arrive 2 hours early because it is an international flight.
Any room left in the cab?

I'm also getting in Tuesday early evening (by train). I assume many others are getting in tonight as well. Should we organize a gathering? Meet at the hotel bar/restaurant? :sharebeer [remember, don't post any location/name info]

That that you have announced you're attending with your bike, fans of your journals will be expecting a full write-up with pics.

Let's post a rideshare notice at the registration table at the Bogleheads conference, Weds evening and Thursday morning. I imagine there will be several rental cars going back to the Philly airport.

Hey everyone, I will have a sign up sheet available during registration for those wanting to ride share at the end of the conference.
