Folding bikes have come a long way in the last 20 years. That may seem expensive initially and may leave you wondering why you’d even think about investing in a folding bike but they do have a lot of advantages over their larger traditional style bicycles.

So here are the best reasons to buy a folding bike:

You can easy take it with you

With a folding bike you can and there’s less chance it will be stolen by bicycle thieves. Most compact folding bikes are small enough that they will be unnoticed. It’s a nice feeling not to feel like you have to go all the way back down to the bottom floor just to check your bike is still where you left it.

They are are extremely practical

You can hop on the public transport if it suddenly starts to rain or you have an important meeting to get to but you can’t chance getting all sweaty before you show up but still fancy wanting to ride home at the end of the day.

Low maintenance cost

Make sure your tyres have air in them, your lights are charged, and your chain is oiled, and that’s pretty much it for looking after a folding bike.

Commuting to work on a folding bike is better for your health

Fresh air is good for you. You’ll inhale more exhaust fumes sitting in a car than you will on a bike. Studies have shown that drivers and passengers are subjected to more air pollution than cyclists and walkers.

Get fit without thinking about it!

The recommended daily physical activity time for adults is 90 minutes a day. Walking from your desk to the coffee machine in work doesn’t count! You can commute to work and get fit and stay thin without really having to think about it. Once it’s a part of your routine it’s not an effort to get fitter.

Folding bikes are convenient, practically thief proof, will save you money, make you friends, and you can take them with you wherever you go.
