Hello all. Newbie here that has not ridden bike in a long time. I have a little dilemma. I want to get back into biking for fun, commuting, exercise, and sometimes...long distances (like some charity runs 30-40-50 miles). I am really liking the folding bike because I can commute to NYC with it on the bus, take it with me in the my RV, and store it much easier in my house. However, I wonder if a road bike would be better for the longer distance runs. I see that riders on folders are riding long rides as well, so I am pretty sure I can still get a folder and ride some long rides. I really want to use the bike all the time (run to stores, visit friends, commute). Can anyone give me any advice? Should I be looking at a road bike instead, or with a quality folder like Brompton or other high end options work for the longer distances.
Any help would be appreciated. I would love to hear from some that have ridden long distances on their folder if possible.
Thanks in advance,
