    Question MARC train and folding bikes

    Looking for fellow MARC riders out there who bring their folding bikes on board for the commute into/out of DC on the Camden or Penn lines. I just picked up one last weekend and as soon as the weather warms up again, I intend to use it to pedal from Union Station to my office (about 1 mile or so). Would appreciate any tips on dealing with the loading/unloading and, of course, the wonderfully warm, friendly and helpful Camden Line conductors...

    Thanks.

    I don't have any info on folding bikes, but you could consider Capital Bikeshare as an option. For a year I rode my bike to the VRE station in Burke Centre VA, took the commuter rail to L'Enfant or Union Station, and then picked up a bike at the station and dropped off near my office. It kept me from having to invest in a folding bike, and to worry about carrying it on and off. May not work for you but thought I would suggest it.
