|Dahon Speed7, packed and ready to go.|
I saw this Dahon Speed7 locked in front of the airport two days in a row last week. I don't see many folding bikes in Flagstaff and confess to being a little excited when I spotted this one. I considered the Speed7 when I first started looking at folders but I fell in love with the Eco3 is red, a more within my price range. I wondered if the owner was someone who worked at the airport or someone flying in and out. The airport is small and just about everyone who works there knows I pedal in most days and I often get questions about my bikes, especially the Dahon.
|Where are you going and where have you been?|
Since I been following Russ and Laura from The Path Less Pedaled and their new cross-country bike tour by Brompton and train, I've been really fascinated with the idea of doing a much more scaled back version of such a road trip myself. Of course, I couldn't help but notice that the Speed7 appeared to be packed down for travel. Perhaps only my own bike tour fantasies at work, but I was dying to know who the owner, where he was from and where he was going. I tried to keep an eye out for the owner but after 48 hours, the Dahon had disappeared. Darn, I had hoped for a good story and a little inspiration. Still, we have an Amtrak station right here in Flagstaff. And it's something I've been wanting to do.
