All folded and ready to roll

The Friday is all packed and ready for us to head off to Florida and South Carolina for a week of easy, organized biking. I managed to squeeze two pairs of shoes into the case as well, so will only need to check that one case.

(I am of course missing glorious riding weather in the Great White North, but it will be worth it to be away from everything for 10 whole days.)

Edit: I realise that the headline of this is completely misleading, because a folded Bike Friday is not ready to roll at all, but I hope you forgive the inaccuracy.

Wish to report that the Friday behaved herself admirably in the flatlands of South Carolina. I did use the little chain ring once, going over a bridge, but otherwise the wind was the only barrier to pedaling fast. Only problem came when I managed to twist the cables ask fitted half the handlebar, so the shifting was sort of jumpy. But easily fixed.

Really is a wonderful bike.

Update, and pictures (pootle pictures too) when I get access to them.
