The culture of folding cycles started about 40 years ago, in the eighties. And since then, the graph of popularity has never stopped going upwards. One of the many reasons for them to become so trendy is the way they are folded. They can be put anywhere after folding, and that makes them a very reliable and adaptable mode of transport. This removes the stress of parking the bike and locking it every now and then. Their mobility to take them anywhere, like on public transport, makes them very useful. Let’s have a look at some of the advantages owning a folding bike provides:
- Ease of Keeping: Whichever vehicle we buy, parking space is one of the main criteria for choosing the product. One of the major decision-making points is how big it will be and whether we have enough space to keep it safe. A folding bike can be folded, as the name suggests, and can be carried easily or kept inside a room. A compact folding bike takes up much less space than a normal bike. It can be carried in a compressed state inside a room or parked under your working table in the office. You can even keep it beneath your bed or put it inside a wardrobe. And when you have to go, just move it out, unfold it, and ride on.
- Ease of Movement: Just like your clothes fit in a suitcase, the foldable bike can be put inside a carry bag and taken along. They are allowed to be kept when you go on buses and trains, and some airlines allow you to take them. So, even if you are going away from home, your cycling habit can continue wherever you go. This makes them the best folding commuter bikes. The usual way is to take your car or motorcycle to the nearest station, and then park there and bear the parking charges till the day you come back. On the other hand, if you take a folding bike, just ride your bike to the station, fold it, and carry it with you wherever the destination is. Cycling Accessories
- Sustainability: The more bikes a city population uses, the healthier their environment will become. Folding bikes don’t require fuel to run, and it saves costs on that expenditure. In the above point, you would have realised that using a car or motorcycle increases your expenses for fuel and parking, but if the user is commuting to the office, school, or even going to another city while taking his or her folding bike with them, they are saving money. Moreover, riding a bike regularly improves your stamina and burns calories. So it's a win-win habit to make yourself as well as the Earth healthier.
- Safety: As you have the facility to carry a folding bike wherever you go, the chances of losing it are very small. There is no need to lock it up in the parking lot when you can fold it and store it inside your house, in school lockers or inside your office cabin. You can go anywhere with a relaxed mind and forget about its safety issues.
