The annual NSW gathering of Bike Friday saw 35 cyclists touring the quiet roads around Grenfell and enjoying local hospitality. Riders came from as far afield as Castlemaine, Newcastle and Wollongong to do 70 and 90km loops out from town with shorter options for those less inclined.
Bike Fridays have smaller wheels and fold - enabling them to be packed inside a normal samsonite type suitcase which can then be taken on a plane as standard luggage. On arrival even smaller wheels can be attached and the suitcase becomes a towed trailer. Many of the cyclists have taken their bikes touring Europe, Alaska , USA ,Cuba . The tandems fit into two suitcases.
The next Australian gathering will be in Mudgee April 2014.
