I was feeling pretty lucky when a representative from Kettler called me to inform me that I WON the Verso Cologne folding bike! As a review blogger, I don’t enter giveaways that often… unless I see something I really want… and I really wanted a new bike. It’s been years (probably 12 years) since I have hopped on a bike and gone for a ride. Living in the mountains, you would think it would be top on my list of things to do. However, I have only had a beach cruiser and that is NOT the bike to ride in my neighborhood.
When the bike arrived, I couldn’t wait to assemble it! Low and behold, it was already assembled… just folded. The only thing I needed to do was pump up the tires and unfold.
I decided to take the kids to the school so we could ride bikes/scooters in the parking lot. It’s the safest place to “learn” how to ride a bike.
In order to get to the school, we had to put all the bikes/scooters in the car… so I folded my bike to make it all fit easily. First I unlatched and folded down the handle.
Next, I unhinged the bike and folded it in half. It’s quite simple… but you do need to lift up on the clip to release the pin.
Once folded, I lifted the bike and placed it into the back of my car. (The bike weighs 32 lbs.)
The kids & I had a great time riding. I know this is a wonderful family activity that we will be able to enjoy up here in the mountains. Thanks KETTLER for my new bike!
