Folding bikes are the superheroes of the biking world. One minute you're quiet little Clark Kent, tapping away on your laptop on the train into work. The next you're flying down the road with your legs pumping, beating out the traffic in the race for home.
Check your local services, but folding bikes can usually be taken on National Rail and bus routes – even during peak times and, in London, even on the Underground. Amazing. But forget all that for now these machines are actually great for cycling!
