Biking from the carwash

Whenever I go to our neighborhood carwash to have my car cleaned I bring the Brompton with me. I park my car, leave the keys with the attendant, unfold my bike, and cycle home. I get to do whatever I want (i.e. go back to sleep, read the paper, surf the net, take a shower, etc.) After an hour, I bike back to the carwash, fold up the Brompton, place it in the trunk, pay the attendant, start the car and drive home.

Folding bike usefulness at its best.

I get a kick out of the jealous looks I get from the other guys there when I leave them in the carwash. It's priceless. : )


  1. likewise for me, i like being on my bike going the same route as the tourists in SG while they have to walk walk walk long distances under the sweltering sun. so ok fine, i'm under the sun din, pero at least i'm moving faster and having more fun doing so! :)

    1. Yeah, kung di ko kasama si misis o ang anak ko, I'd bring my folding bike with me everytime I go out of town.

  2. Kris,
    I think it is a fantastic idea to have some fun.
    Plus, it is a healthy habit too.
    Peace :)
