So, it seems that those that control the trains hate bikes (at least during "peak" times). They do have an exception, a folded bike that is in a bag. My response to hearing that was, "So, you allow…Continue

Hiya, I've been away from this website for a while, but heard a whisper about this group foldy ride, if bromette can drag me outta the house tomorrow we'll see you at Belmont Park @ 11. :-)

Dear Bicycle Belle,

we meet at 11am (a civilized hour unknown to riders clad in lycra ) in Belmore Park and not Belmont Park. Park is on Eddy Avenue adjacent to Central.

Hi matt, yes I knew which park despite not knowing the name! Thanks for confirmtion.

On Bikely - Folders Ride Feb 2012

It is only a rough work but tells me that we did nearly 30km:-)

oh well, maybe I'll do better next time. Unfortunately everything conspired against folder riding and I on Sunday. In compensation have been out for bit on Mon and Tue, but it isn't the same....It is very good to hear a few turned up, it was only Matt and I the first time.

Garry, hope whatever's stopped you from attending sorted itself out. 

Regarding next time, given how much people appeared to enjoy themselves, it shouldn't be a long wait, I hope:-)

Hi Marcus,

I was thinking (it happens sometimes....) that once a month would be too often, probably every second is a possibility, or once every season, that way the next ride could be quite soon as summer ends tomorrow. Have seen quite a few Cranes like yours recently; my theory is that Aldi is serious threat to Brompton :))

Comment by Marcus on February 29, 2012 at 8:06am

Matt, re: frequency of ride, what say you?

Garry, yes Cranes will rule the world shortly. In the meantime, I am ogling every single Brompton I come across:-)

Well they are nice, but I think those 16'' wheels might take some getting used to - the step down from my Pashley which has proper 28" wheels to the BendR's 20'' seems vast at times.
