My buddy and I are planning our 'big adventure' from Bay Area to Glacier National Park, looking at doing a 10-day roadtrip in August 2014. To save time we decided to fly to Spokane, and initially looked at renting bikes there. Plan B is to use a bike mover (Daily Direct) to ship our bikes there, and then ship them back home when we're done.
Then it occurred to me, what about finding a couple MOA members based in the Bay Area who are up for riding our bikes (2004 K12GT, 2012 R12GS) from San Francisco to Spokane, and paying their airfare to get back home?
We'd still have to find a way to get the bikes back home again after our ride. If we didn't find anyone who wanted to ride them, we could still use the bike mover.
Anyone ever tried organizing a trip this way before? Any thoughts?
