For quite some time now I have been thinking of buying a bicycle. It would make going to ‘medium’ distance places (where it’s a fair distance to walk but really shouldn’t need to take a car) much easier, fun, healthier and friendlier on the environment.
On a trip to Japan last year I came across these bicycles at a very reasonable price, that would fold-up in half for easy storage – perfect for an apartment dweller with limited space. But I couldn’t bring myself to buy it, carry it around during my holiday and post it back to Australia! I really should have made the effort, I’m kicking myself for it now as I haven’t been able to find anything quite like them since. If you’re enjoying a bike ride this weekend, I’m very jealous.
