Unless your reason for a holiday is to lay by the swimming pool with the occasional walk to the local bar – and there’s nothing wrong with that is there – then taking a folding bike with you on your holiday is a huge asset. More and more of us are now choosing to spend our free time in the UK for financial reasons as well as ecological and we are coming to realise the advantages of doing so. There are so many beautiful places to explore that we can begin to wonder why we ever needed to travel so far with all that entails. Taking folding bikes with you gives you more freedom to explore off the beaten track. There are so many cycle paths around that makes being on the road a more pleasant experience these days. They are so easy to fold up and stow in the car; in fact it’s quite surprising how easy it is and how light they are. These bikes come at varying prices and making the investment to have your own is well worth it as they can make all the difference to your holiday or weekend break. If you have ever thought of having a canal holiday for example you would be able to take your folding bike with you on the boat and once you have moored up you can unfold it and off you go. There are some beautiful unspoilt areas that you can get to enjoy in that way. What’s more you will have a good deal of exercise in pleny of fresh air and return from your vacation in better health than when you left.
Another aspect of folding bikes being an asset is the fact that they are great for commuting to the work place. It’s so much easier to be able to break your journey by getting on andoff a bus easily. The bike can be folded up quickly and you can easily stow them on the bus. The same applies to tubes and trains obviously. When you get to your workplace you can find somewhere to to keep it in the office so you don’t have to worry whether your bike will still be where you left if secured outside when you leave work a the end of the day. When you get back home you can put it in the garage or in a cupboard with confidence. Having heard over the years of many bikes being stolen this is a huge asset. So it can be seen that having a fold up bike is an asset – from saving money when commuting to work; having a more pleasurable commute; giving more enjoyment to your holidays; making the idea of having boat holidays more interesting and making your bike more secure by being able to keep it in the office and in the home.
