Hey, I’m Mark – “The Folding Bike Guy”
My name is Mark, and I’m an Engineer and cycling enthusiast hailing from Australia.
I have been crazy about bikes for almost as long as I can remember. I grew up riding mountain bikes and road bikes and have competed at the National level in mountain biking.
Growing up my father owned a family bicycle shop business and I spent every summer and school holiday in Scotland working as a bike mechanic. Those were great memories and over the years I have built and repaired thousands of mountain, road, and folding bicycles.
About a decade ago I became obsessed with folding bikes. Why?
Because I relocated to Singapore, a bustling metropolitan city with a growing network of cycling paths and park connectors. Living in a metropolitan city undoubtedly has its benefits, such as exceptional transport networks.
However, I constantly found myself struggling to get where I needed to be on time.
Whether I was stuck in an endless stream of traffic throughout the city or walking large distances between train stations and my workplace, I was always verging on being late. I started searching for a (healthier) solution to my time-pressed commuter issues.
Utilizing a mixed form of transport was ultimately the best way to get to where I needed to be on time.
Now I truly reap the time and health benefits of commuting with my folding bike. I am far healthier, fitter, and more active than I used to be.
I also have the flexibility to go anywhere that I want with my folding bike.
These truly magnificent inventions are portable, easily stored away and extremely lightweight to carry. I hope you find the site useful and would love to hear from you in the comments below!
