Airplanes and Bicycles

News from the League of American Bicyclists:

Bikes Fly Free with Frontier Airlines
Cyclists taking their bikes as checked baggage in recent years have faced ever-escalating fees and charges from every airline - sadly, a far cry from the days when League membership enabled you to avoid any such fees. So for once, for those of you who fly Frontier, there is good news!
