Next week I will bike the Canal one way & I will need to a shuttle. Many of the shuttle services are no longer in business. Can anyone tell me how I can shuttle with my bike (by bus or car) from Rome to Amsterdam, NY. - about 85 miles? Amtrak representative says I cannot take my bike on the train. Ideas or thoughts would be great.

Bonnie -- I see that you have not gotten a response. Your request seems to be rather strange. Are you only riding from Amsterdam to Rome and then needing a ride back? If that is the case, possibly asking a warmshower host if they would provide the service for a fee. I can't think of another option for randomly reaching out for a shuttle. Possibly Uber or Lyft might be able to arrange something, but no sure if you can specify your need to accommodate a bike. Then again... letting it stick out of a trunk wouldn't be the worst option! Good luck.

We rode from Buffalo to Rochester in 2019. Diane of Go Bike Erie met us in Pittsford and shuttled us back to Buffalo with our bikes. She has a large van that seats 7 and a trailer that holds 8 bikes. She was enthusiastic, reliable, and informative. It appears the name of the business is now Great American Bike Tours. From the website: (315) 316-BIKE E-MAIL: © 2018 Erie Canal Bike Tours, LLC

I just met Diane on the trail near Syracuse. She and her husband are no longer offering bike shuttle service. They continue to use their excellent van and bike trailer arrangement for organized bike tours.
