Yesterday, I boarded the Amtrak train with the 10-ton bike at Stockton, California, after a short Amtrak bus ride from San José
My large rear saddlebags get checked in as baggage here, while my bicycle rolls into the San Joaquin train and sits in a nice bicycle rack during the trip. Many Amtrak trains do not accept unboxed bicycles, but this route does.
