A new cycling friend of mine who rides a MTB wrote me an email recently moaning woefully that he wish he had a foldie as there are restrictions on taking a full size bike on the trains here in Perth.

He writes:

Now I know why you love the fold so much. I am not able to board a train from Mandurah until 09:02 hrs. Then the latest I could leave Perth is 15 :48....

The earliest I can board a train to the City at Bull Creek is 09:10. The latest I can board a train from the City to alight at Bull Creek is 16:15. Oh why haven't I got a folding bike?

Sometimes we take this advantage forgranted but hearing him moan, I can't help but feel as pleased as punch. Dont you guys too?
