Hi , Im in the Dc tri club and I am doing the chicago Triathlon , I live here in arlington and I was wondering if anyone knew where you would go to ship your bike, I found a bike shipping service on the Chicago Tri website but its located in IL, How would I go about shipping my bike to Chicago, I do not have a box. I would want to find a place where they would disassemble the bike and pack it away. Thanks
Chicago Tri is a big triathlon. Go to Tri Bike Transport website and see if they are shipping bikes from DC to Chicago. Tri bike transport is your best bet.
If not, rent a box from Conte's/Cap Hill, borrow from friends or WAba and carry it on the plane with you. If you have enough time, I would suggest shipping your bike UPS ground to the bike store associated with Chicago Triathlon 2 weeks before your race. That store will build up your bike and store it until the race.
I like Bicycle Pro Bike shop in Alexandria to rent a box and break down bike. They are not merchant partners but are probably a little cheaper than Conte's.
Good luck w/ them hills in Chicago.
