If you want to get fit and avoid the rush-hour jams, then a folding bike is the perfect solution. Simply put your bike in the boot, park in an out-of-town car park and pedal your way past the stationary cars. You’ll not only arrive at work less stressed, but you’ll stay healthier and you’ll be doing your bit for the environment too. What’s more, if you live in london or durham, you’ll avoid having to pay the congestion charge as well.
A folding bike will take the strain if you get the train to work as well. Ride to the station and avoid having to fork out on extortionate parking fees, stash your bike between the seats, then ride the rest of the way without hindrance at the other end.
As well as being able to stick two fingers up to the train companies, who want to impose more and more restrictions on commuters taking bikes on trains, under your own steam you’re guaranteed to get to work on time without having to sweat it out on a packed bus or tube train. Now what could be easier?
We’ve reviewed five bikes here, ranging from just £99 to a little over £600, so there will be something for all budgets. Incidentally, if you hadn’t intended spending much money on a folder just take a look at the sums. An annual london underground ticket for zones one and two is currently £888 - so in well under a year, you will have covered the cost of the most expensive bike here - and in the second year you’ll actually be ahead. Think about it.
Why buy a folding Bicycle?
• Handy to keep in the boot of your car in case of an emergency
• Flexibility - put your folder on a train, bus or plane to increase the range of your cycling. Alternatively, ride to a destination, and take public transport home
• Avoid rush-hour jams on the daily commute by either stashing your bike on a train or bus, or parking your car in an out-of-town car park
