So excited for that! I am also probably not very representative of a normal biker... I used to live in Portland... but 4 miles isn't too bad?
I am renting a car and hitching my bike to the back. Shipping a bike is only ~$100 though last time I checked. Also, you can ship pretty large boxes with Greyhound for cheap. I have friends who have done that with a lot of success.
Also, biking is always more fun and safer with a group. Anyone down to join me sometime?
There's an underground tunnel that goes from the beach to Chicago Ave.
