This is all the luggage Basil and I required for six days we spent in New York City earlier this summer: Just the Brompton T bag and an admittedly large ancillary bag. And helmet.
My clothes for the week, as well as the hip pack and my cycling gear for the 5 Boro Tour, are all packed neatly inside. The T bag makes traveling with Basil easy, even though we go by train, not by cycle; it slips onto my Brompton’s luggage block, so Basil carries the weight, not me.
We were traveling a lot more lightly than some on our train. I’m pretty sure you could fit a Brompton into two of those suitcases — along with an over-stuffed T bag.
Basil and gear nearly disappear behind various other bags.
Next to bicycles, trains must be the best way to travel, ever. Windows! Leaving New York, the sky was overcast.
But not for long:
The sky, like the scenery, changes as the miles fall away:
Travel. It’s such a good thing.
