It might not be a good idea to pick up the bike and ride it home the end of February, or first of March from Grand Rapids. (I live in a Grand Rapids suburb.)
1. Usually there is still a lot of salt on the roads, no matter how well you wash it when you get home, you will get corrosion.
2. We still get snow into late March, even worst we get freezing rain during that period.
3. April is a better month.
I looked at my ride books, the earliest, l have been able to ride consistantly 3 or more days a week without salt on the roads or snow was April 12, 2009
Rode to work once in April and had to leave the bike at work and get a ride home because of an unpredicted snowstorm it was almost a week before the roads were good enough to ride the bike home. At least I got to keep the bike inside the building (wanted the lobby, settled for the shipping/receiving area
You might get lucky though
I would look to come up after a WARM rain storm before it snows again.
Least cost flights are from BWI (Baltimore)
