Er, not like you're going to see this before the ride (you're probably on your way already) but for posterity's sake, I'd leave the rack and lock on the bike.
Hope you have a great ride!
Julie Hochstadter said:H3 brought up a good point about weight. Should I take my rack off my bike for the ride? I like to have my lock on me that I bungee to the rack. Suggestions???
Any more info on this subject ?
