Folding bike for fun and convenience: An addition to my dream fleet?

I might just have added another bike to my big bike wish list!  See this post on my dream fleet.

This weekend Tracy and I attended the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy annual conference at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. Unlike in past years there aren’t papers relevant to the blog for me to report on.

But, but, but..I did get to try my friend Alexis‘ folding bike.  When she’s not riding her bike she is theorizing about social justice at Carleton University. She is touring around on sabbatical soon and taking the bike with her. I was impressed with the bike. It was quicker than I thought it would be. The very upright ride works well with regular street clothes. I’m riding in a leather jacket, skirt, and tights in the photo above.

I don’t quite have a need for one but it did pack up so very light and tiny that I’m tempted. Definitely, the Brompton is now on my wish list for my fleet.

Thanks Alexis!

Have you ridden a folding bike before? What did you think? Like, love, or not impressed?
