Around the World on a Folding Bike

The Folding Pilot is an airline pilot who travels the world with his folding bike.

With little interest in traditional tourist activities, the Folding Pilot finds his adventures off the beaten path in strange and exotic locations across the globe. No corner of the human experience is out of bounds.

 

Excerpt from The Folding Pilot – Around the World on a Folding Bike

My night started out the same way most of my adventures do. I’d been cruising around the city on my folding bike and like always, I’d found my way into the seedier part of town. I stopped to ask a man for directions and in return, the man asked about my folding bike. We talked for a while and eventually the man explained that he was going over to his sister’s house for a beer and asked if I would like to come. I’m always paranoid in these situations. I fear that I’m being led to a group of thugs to be killed and stripped of my worldly positions. It’s probably a rational concern given the circumstances but eventually we arrived at the dilapidated building where his sister lived.

Bikefold recommends this highly entertaining and informative website.

This guy is awesome.

30 Years of Dahon Folding Bicycles

Dahon folding bikes is the brain-child of David Hon.  Working together with his brother Henry, the two developed the first modern folding bicycle in the early 1980’s and proceeded to unfold the bicycle’s potential.

220+ patents and over 30 years of quiet evolution and ingenious technologies later, DAHON has shaped the way folding bikes are made and the way we get from one place to another.
