RWBTC is a recreational bicycling club devoted to the promotion of friendly cycling in the Redlands, CA area.
We cater to riders of all levels and abilities.
Metrolink won't accomadate extra bike cars. There schedules are fixed and sometimes don't even have the bike cars when the schedule shows thay should have one.
Is it safe to assume that leaders for this weekends rides which incorporate the train have notified metrolink in case a second bike car needs to be added?

Train #857 is on the Inland Empire-Orange County Line. I was referring to train #751 on the 91 Line that leaves Riverside-Downtown at 7:40am and arrives at West Corona at 8:04am. Even with a 15 min delay in start time, there will be 7 hours to make the first train from San Clemente, and an additional; hour and 40 minutes to make the second train back. To me that is well worth the gas and time to NOT drive an additional 35-40 miles round trip, particularly with afternoon/evening traffic on the 91, as well as being a greener alternative - IEBA would be proud of us!
