Official Folding Bike Events Thread

Ok rules for this thread:

1) Only event organizers will post, to reduce clutter. Keep the discussion out of this thread and in the event-specific thread please.

2) Try to keep editing to a minimum; that is, post here only when you're quite sure about the date, time, and location of your foldies ride to prevent confusion.

3) Format as such:

Link to thread discussing ride
Name of Ride: X
Date: X
Start location: X
Meet time: 0:00
Roll time: 0:00
Distance: X
Difficulty Level: (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)
Route: X
Ride Description/Other Details: Pace (no drop, brisk, fast, hammerfest, etc.), SAG/No SAG, etc.

4) Disclaimer: Ride at your own risk. Cycling carries a significant risk of personal injury or death. DO NOT participate in any rides unless you are knowledgeable about the risks involved, and are willing to assume personal responsibility for all risks associated with these activities. BikeForums and ride organizers cannot and will not be responsible for any damages or bodily injury caused to any rider or their bicycle for any reason. Please observe all applicable traffic laws, wear a helmet and conduct yourself in a safe and prudent manner while participating.

Not sure if this is the right place to mention this but a few members have asked for some reviews and just want to let you know we will be in San Francisco this weekend for a "demo tour" (Sat to Mon) so please shoot us an email if you want us to swing by your neighborhood for a demo!

Sharing is caring!

Velovision Trip to Spezi 2010



Last year's trip was very enjoyable and successful, and I'm planning to make this year's very similar indeed. I must admit though that in the rush up to Christmas I haven't yet confirmed all of the details: these will be finalised early in January. But basically, the trip will be as per last year:

http://www.velovision.co.uk/cgi-bin/show_comments.pl?storynum=969


We'll be staying again at the excellent Bellheim Tennis Club, with shower etc facilities on site and with breakfasts served each morning (optional, 5 Euros each IIRC, and plenty of it!). Where we park is a few miles away from the show venue, so you'll need to bring a bike, ideally a folding one (we may have some spares, or a few non-folders can be accommodated if necessary).

The only significant change may be to change the pickup point from near King's Cross station to somewhere like Upminster tube station, to avoid the bus getting caught in the Friday eveing London traffic. This should get us to the ferry a bit earlier and generally give a bit more time in hand, while still being convenient for most people to reach from or via central London. I'll take soundings about this from all who have expressed an interest when I get back in January, and also discuss with Chop our driver before making a decision. Let me know if you have any views...

This year`s Minivelo Lovers Festa `12 will be held on June 9th - once again Tokyo National Stadium.

Last year`s event was incredible, with drool worthy folders and minivelos all over the place! Once again, this year, there will be small wheeled bike races around the perimeter of the stadium, as well as a custom bike contest Many manufacturers will be there displaying there latest offerings.

http://www.minilove.jp/

Lots of photos here:

If you live in Japan, or will be here at the time visiting, let me know - maybe we can organize a ride up to the event. If you want to go up in style on one of my "Yokohama Rides and Rentals" Pacific Carrymes, I can set you up!

Does anyone know if there's going to be another Folder Frolic ride in conjunction with the Interbike show in Las Vegas this year?

If so, when and where? In front of the Venetian again?

Please advise!
