The bike goes into baggage area and on the Cascades SEA-BEL route there is no
checked baggage.

I used the Amtrak email query to ask about it.  They replied (within a short
amount of time on a Friday afternoon) that the only bikes allowed on the
SEA-BEL leg are folding bikes.

I do have a Bike Friday folding bike, but strongly prefer to ride my Surly LHT
for a trip like the return from Bellingham.  It will be 300+ miles in two or
three days.

I'm curious about the reply.

I do know a lot of bike people in Seattle.  I've written to them and am
getting help on routing and planning.
