I'm putting serious thought into taking our two Rovers to Florida this fall to pedal the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage trail. Since I live in Sacramento, that's not something I'm going to put on the rack and drive there. I'm just wondering if anyone else has done anything along these lines. I thought about renting a trike but I don't think there is a way to rent a recumbent trike and I don't know how much they'd want for a three or four day bike trip. I was thinking I could take the Rovers to pieces, put them in crates and ship them to my brother, but then I'd have to spend a day reassembling them, and I'd have to figure out a way to transport them to the trail, since I don't think I can rent a vehicle with a hitch, and I'd be bringing two kids along so a minivan with the back seats folded down would not work. The logistics are quickly putting a damper on the idea.
Perhaps I can keep them disassembled till I get to the trail? I still have no idea how much they would cost to ship or if there is a better way to do this.
