Folding Society Origami Ride

We caught the train to Long Eaton for the 11am start of the Origami Ride along the
Nutbrook trail. Bikes present were Moultons, Birdys, Airnimals, Bromptons, Dahons, a trike, a Dawes Galaxy and others (sorry I can't recall them all!).

We had the only A-bike, and it was the first one many of the riders had ever seen
in real life, so it attracted alot of interest. The 9 mile trail followed picturesque canal towpaths
which varied from smooth sealed path to dirt sections with a bit of mud thrown in for good measure. The A-bike seemed to handle the dirt and gravel without any problems.

Many people tried the A-Bike during the ride and most found it much better than they had expected. The bike had no trouble keeping up with the gentle pace of the ride.

One interesting observation is that even though I had my custom seatpost and
"standard" racing-bike seat fitted, some people still did not like the seat!
It goes to show that seat choice is a very personal thing.

The Folding Society Origami rides are a great way to meet friendly interesting people
with an interest in bicycles, and small wheel/folding bikes in particular.
I really like the relaxed, welcoming and non-competitive attitude of the group.
It was nice to try out some of the other bikes that were along for the ride.
The ride was superbly organised and led. Another great day out!

Hello, John

We, Korean A-bikers call you as 'London A-bike Boy'.

Maybe you know the launching of the new blog page of AbikeCentral. Here : http://www.abikecentral.com/blog
I am a writer of the blog and posted two articles.

But I think there is a serious problem that the articles seem to be Asian style.
So I hope you to become a writer and upload your stories. Please..

Best regards
Binch Shin

You are also famous in Netherlands.
I think it is suitable that you replace my site link with the Netherlands Shop link.
I'm Okay.. because Korean A-bikers don't use English. hee hee...

And.. To patrick
I like Netherlands because of a free structural analysis program, 'the Framework'.
Anyway I recommend you to contact the AbikeCentral too.

Nice little stories of your A-Bike escapades. I've just today learned of this bike but am very interested in finding information on how taller riders fare on it. I'm 6'2" tall (1.8796 meters) and am worried that the ride would be awkward for someone my height. If you have any info. to share or know of anyone who might, please let me know. Thanks!
