In front of the Serpentine, in London. Dahon Presto Lite converted to singlespeed with BIG ring to push those little wheels. Very light and zippy. I wasn't planning on going bathing with it.

Also have a Bike Friday Pocket Llama kicking around.

So sad. All those stolen bikes and broken hearts, followed by the lonely splash into the Seine of people who cannot imagine life without their beloved. Later they will wash up on The Left Bank to become characters woven into cautionary tales by the literati. I could go on but I may have lost the plot...

Tomorrow I will be taking the bus to pick up another specimen for the zoo... it was captured by a friend when he found it in his back yard and he called me.

Dahonis Marinus... despite being 30 years old it looks like it had a pretty easy life and was not afraid of humans, had it felt threatened it would have packed itself up in a little ball.

I understand it is already saddle broke so I should be able to ride home.

Rode around Riverside today and took some pictures along the way. Rode next to the Santa Ana River. Saw a small plane on my way up to Mt. Rubidoux. The scenery from this place is very nice. On the way to a park a saw a street with Chinese writing next to it, never seen that before in Riverside, CA. Weather was like in the high 80's to low 90s F.

Went for a ride down what I thought was going to be a paved path, but it dead-ended in a commuter rail parking lot. However, in a different part of the parking lot was a well-traveled single-track trail which led to this path under the power lines. Surprise wildlife sighting of the AM was more than one rabbit (sorry, no bunny pix):



On the way back, I stopped to take some shots of the Birdy against the train station building. This is the Terminal for the Newburyport MA - Boston North Station MBTA commuter line. Also note the brick arches -- "M" for mconlonx...

This is my first post to the Folding bike forum. I've ridden a recumbent for the past several years but I wanted something easier to take with me on trips. My pre-loved Bike Friday fits the bill although I'm still getting the fit adjusted.

Truly inspiring. Just got a Jetstream - thinking I can maybe take it on some rides that I might not have tried it on...

I enjoyed your blog. Interesting petroglyph pictures. Glad you are enjoying the folding world after a few decades off the bike. I've used a lot of Collins axes, but I don't think I've ever seen a Colleen machete.

You are going to force me to post pictures of folders in snow and cold rain to counter your tropical photos. One more week of days getting shorter and nights getting longer, then winter really begins.

Have been riding in the Rio Grande Valley around Mission Texas for the last few weeks on my Giant Halfway. Took a couple of pictures yesterday.



The Roadrunner was faster than I.

Since my Ti Swift frameset is about to ship, it was time to get on the bikes last weekend. Took them out on one of our local Jogger/Walker/Bike/Horse trails and had a great time...

A fun time was had by all, and it didn't start raining until we were driving home...
