The 49th annual Nevada City Classic was held yesterday, June 21st. This race is a landmark on the Northern California racing schedule and attracts many top riders from across the states.

As a domestic flight crew member for American Airlines I get the opportunity to travel all over the country with my Break-Away bike. Given my unique position I am able to take the bike on the plane with me and stow it in the overhead bin. In the previous blog (Vol. 12) I have pictures of how I carry it and stow it. I have also traveled on my own time with my Break-Away and had to check it at the counter as a regular passenger. The wonderful thing about traveling with my BA is that it can be checked without paying the extra baggage fee that is associated with flying with a full size road bike travel case. It looks like a large roll-aboard bag or suitcase, so no questions are asked. It has always met the requirements of standard baggage check-in.
