I came across recently a blogger from the US, also a Bike Friday owner, who made a posting last year (with the title above) about why they aren't car photos in my stories at BF website, and I guess in many other bike forums, stories etc. His very valid point is that if we are honest, many of us drive to our ride destination with our bikes in the car (easier with foldies of course).
We drive to every ride. Were it not for the automobile, there'd be no bike clubs, no club rides, no more than three bike shops per major city, no Trek, no Specialized, no Pearl Izumi, certainly no Cervelo or Colnago and nearly no cycling in this great land.
I wonder what the cycling purists have to say about this? On that count, I'm largely with Maynard except with foldies, I tend to jump on public transport whenever possible while I was in Singapore as parking there is crazy!
Note: Cars do get featured in Lovethefold from time to time, together with planes, trains and boats, not forgetting the odd horse and elephant :)
