Longest Journey On A Dahon?

Monday January 5, 2009

I want to set myself a goal for 2009.  Something that will make me plan, achieve and then be proud of.  I may not complete my activity but tonight after a glass of wine I feel like making a trip on my Dahon.  I’d like it to be a mini epic (for me, anyway!),  but this got me on to thinking…

What’s the longest journey completed on a Dahon?!  Not necessarily in one day, but concsecutive days of riding?  What have you achieved?

  1. Hello Dave,

    sound great for me. I have seen some video’s which are my favourites – “Our Dahon Folding Bikes around the World” and “Folding Dahon bike in Vohemar (Madagascar 2006)” both on youtube.

    So I’m not saying that you have to go to Africa or Spain but nice trip in your country should be fine.

    The biggest problem is with documentation – photos and videos. Best will be if somebody could travel with you and make it 🙂


    • Thanks Mech1. I’m not sure what I’m going to do – taking time off work will be one problem, the second being getting myself motivated!

      Thanks for the video suggestions.


  2. I take the train to Coleraine and ride from there along the north coast. My rides are normally around 30 miles but getting a new job has curtailed my riding. I hope to get going again when the weather improves. The Dahon is capable of it. I’ll be glad to get out again.


  3. Hi Dave,
    I once went with a friend from Berlin, Germany, to Szczecin, Poland and then to the Polish/German island Usedom. We were camping over night and my little Dahon Speed (custom-built by http://www.velowerk.ch) was carrying our tent, my sleeping bag, the beer and all my other things. My friend went with a big bike and carried a little less luggage.
    Below is a link of the trip on Google maps.
    I only have two photos up on the web yet: http://www.flickr.com/search/?s=int&w=81012549%40N00&q=paul&m=text
    Camping with bikes is one of the coolest vacations one could do. You are truly independent and meet lots of interesting people.
