Hello I am interested i finding o if there is a shuttle service or ride service to get me and 3 other people and their bikes back to the start of the ride. we are hoping to start in Amsterdam and end in Utica. Can we go by train and if so can we reserve spots for our bikes? Ellen Maiman

Amtrak.com has all the answers about trains. Looks like the latest service out of Utica heading east is 4:26 PM. If you biked west to east and ended in Amsterdam, latest train leaves Amsterdam 4:43 PM (heading west) giving you a little more biking time. [Clarification here: I'm assuming that you are riding this 60-mile ride in one day. If you are going to include an overnight -- other earlier trains are scheduled. Go to the Amtrak website.] As far as taking bikes on Amtrak -- reserve with as much advance time as possible. There are only 4 bike racks available on any given train and they will sell. It helps if your travel day is flexible -- they may be sold on one day and not the next. It's a rather inexpensive option -- about $20 for the ticket and every bike is $20 (set fee per bike). Good luck with your plans.

The train stuff gets pretty intricate as far as where to get on and off, where to park, how to reserve, what's allowed and what's not. Search the forum (top of the page) to make sure you don't miss anything.
