My multi-modal commute just got easier

Hello Bike Commuters and fellow folding bike riders! I finally had the chance to ride the Giant Expressway folding bike to work and I am happy to report that my train-bike commute got easier and more convenient. I love the fact that I can fold the bike, stash it inside my sedan’s trunk, park inside the covered parking lot and be ready to ride to the train station in seconds.

Another HUGE plus is that I get to sit next to my folded bicycle, no need to use the crowded bike racks and play the “train stop dance”, if you ride the Metrolink, you know what I mean.

The bike also takes less space at the office, in fact, I get to park the bike in my cubicle right behind me.

However, riding a small bike also has its negatives such as the never ending teasing that I get: Clown bike, little people bike, Junior bike, kid bike, etc. It’s OK, bike commuters always get teased anyways. I also have to get used to the bike’s performance, or lack of thereof, max speed on this bike is about 15 mph so I have to pace myself so I won’t sweat too much on my way to the office.

Overall, I am really happy with my purchase but I am already thinking of ways to make the folding bike go faster 🙂
