A new bike for new adventures

I’ve been thinking of getting a fold-up bike for some time, as sometimes, especially for work, I like the idea of hopping on the train with a bike. However as you know, especially if you live in the UK like I do, train companies are restricting people from taking bikes on their trains. To an extent I agree with them and on the other hand I curse them, as I like the idea of cycling in other places that aren’t on my doorstep.

So anyway, today, I purchased a really cool bike made by the well known manufacturer Dawes.

I took a quick photo of it whilst it was setup ready for use. In fact it is quite easy once you’ve practiced a couple of times to fold it up and pack it away again. It came with a great big bag for storage in the back of the car and easier carrying. I was quite surprised that it has 6 gears which many bikes of this style don’t have.


I will be using it for work when I need to commute somewhere but I shall also use it for exploring some places a bit further off. It fits in the boot of my Skoda really easily and we could almost fit two of them in there if we purchased another!


    1. Thanks David. It’s still in the boot of my car at the moment but will take it for a ride this afternoon, just to play around with the adjustments etc
