    Hi all.

    Hello, I commute on my folding bike in Bristol, England.

    20 miles round trip in all weathers.

    God I love my commute, except when I fall off, but then I love the adrenaline that an 'off' brings.

    :-)

    Erm, how often do you fall off your bike?!

    Hello mordecai, perhaps we are related...I would not normally say that, as you live in Bristol, but you would seem to be as good on bicycles as I am .

    Welcome to BF!

    I will post a pic of my bike when I get home from work, no pics here :-(

    I fell off my bike when the chain snapped under load. I guess I had it coming really as I had just passed the 5k mile barrier on my bike and the chain was probably stretched beyond recognition. Lessons have been learned.

    I lived in Clifton till I came to Canada 40 yrs ago. I was working on the Concorde development. As a teenager I used to ride my bike to go caving in the Mendips, and used to ride a tandem with my blind brother. There are plenty of steep hills to fall down.
