We are constantly challenging what constitutes the minimum amount of stuff we have to take on our voyage. One item that has recently been removed from the list is folding bikes. We were very certain for a long time that we needed to have 2, if not 4, folding bikes. We just knew that we would end up some place and want to pull these them out to pedal around. After a number of email exchanges with other folks doing this “gig”, we’ve concluded that the number of places that we could actually use the bikes is so small that we shouldn’t waste our valuable space on them. Where we want to travel, the roads are unimproved, muddy, rocky, or just plain impassable with wheels.
