New convert to folding bikes

Posted by Dunsobarky on August 25, 2017 at 7:42pm 4 Comments

Moved into a new but smaller apartment with no garage space. No place for the big bikes so sold them, including my pride and joy, the ebike and bought a folder. It's a Giant Expressway 1 selected after much deliberation and assessments. Would love a Brompton but couldn't justify the cost differential. It's great fun on a folder, loving my daily commute.

Commuter Advice = Redcliffe to the Valley

Posted by Angel Maher on February 24, 2017 at 4:57pm 3 Comments

Hi All!!

I'm moving to Redcliffe soon and would like to explore the notion of riding to the Valley from Redcliffe 

I commute only to work - not a road rider on weekend etc

Is anyone able to advise how long it might take and if it's safe to ride along the wetlands etc early in the mornings or when it gets dark in the winter...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
