Saw a very interesting bicycle setup in Meyersdale, PA along the Great Allegheny Passage Trail. Here is how it works.
Pack your gear, clothing, and other necessities in a flimsy but sturdy duffle bag then fold and pack your Bike Friday into the Samsonite Luggage Travel Case. Get a ride to the Airport and off you go. When you get to your destination, take your bicycle out of the solid luggage travel case and it unfolds in seconds and is ready to ride.
Then take the gear and clothing from the duffle bag and put in in the Samsonite Luggage bicycle carrier which then becomes your bicycle trailer storing all the touring gear which you tow along behind you. Off you go.
When done with the tour and you're back at the Airport take your touring gear out of the bicycle trailer and put it back into the duffle bag. Then in seconds, fold the Bike Friday and put it back into the hard case luggage trailer. Check in your luggage and off you go...again. Cool system!
