Longer tours mean more miles

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Foldable bikes do far more than short commutes

“I usually do lot longer tours.  We were in Morocco doing 100 kilometres a day. You carry everything in the panniers. The foldable works very well. I have over 50,000 kms on this one. Big tours in the USA, like that.” Photographer’s notes: I am so used to foldable bikes being part of the daily commute, I forget that they are super comfortable for many people. But I was still surprised at the idea of a foldable being used for a long tour. Then, when I se the size of this front pannier, I understand ou can carry an awful lot from one bag. I am almost jealous my traditional bike does not have something so functional.
