I'm also very pleased that Lynette Chiang, Customer Evangelist of Bike Friday, USA has kindly included my tikit travel adventures in the Bike Friday company website as well.

Travel has also helped develop my amateur photography skills and I was delighted when an Australian Phd Anthropology Researcher wanted to use one of my Indonesian photos. I've also been a very good boy and restrained from getting more bikes (I have 8 if you must know), save for my Surly LHT. But I'm in the midst of revamping my portfolio of foldies towards a more touring type with great climbing gears. Preferably as low as 22". Two bikes come to mind - the Dahon TR or the Bike Friday Llama.
This passion for cycling has helped open my eyes to new experiences, sights, food, culture, history, technology and most of all, connecting with all sorts of remarkable people from all around the world and at home.
My birthday wish for Lovethefold is that it will continue to bring people together to enjoy the simple pleasure of being on a saddle. In such a complicated and complex world we live in today, we all need to ride more to discover our wonderful world, and rediscover ourselves. Perhaps that will ignite fresh ideas and unleash creativity that we never know were given to us.
Thank you for reading Lovethefold and I hope you will continue to share the wonderful experience of gliding on 2 small wheels with me. May the true love, joy and peace of Christmas be yours.
