What Do You Do on a Bike Friday
Return to Germany

Dear Bike Friday,

In the late 1980's I was in the U.S. Army, lived in Germany, and rode a Centurion Comp TA for exercise and pleasure. I also rode with a bike club.

Germany was and is really bike friendly. There is a certain respect for cyclists, and the countryside is covered with a network of well paved small roads that wind their way through tree covered rolling green hills, multi-colored farm fields, wine country, and beautiful castle filled river valleys. I have always wanted to go back to Germany and ride again.

This past July, your company helped me re-live some my good times in Germany, when I took my Pocket Rocket with me on a two-week business trip. The riding experience was almost magical. Why? My Pocket Rocket was made to measurements taken from the riding position on the same Centurion I rode back in the day.

Mid-summer in July, it doesn't get dark until 10 p.m. in Germany. Somehow, I managed to get in over two hundred miles of riding during those two weeks, frequently after work.

The Pocket Rocket performed its magic in the hills near in the Rhineland, the steep hills of the Taunus Mountains, and the steeper hills of the Schwabian Alps.

I even rode a bit in Stuttgart. The bike fit folded, wheels on, perfectly in the back of my rental car. I rode alone, and with friends. People were amazed that the Bike Friday came out of a suitcase, and rode just like their normal bikes.

This bike climbs like a mountain goat and descends like it is on rails. Two hundred miles never passed so fast.

This picture is of a sweaty old guy, me, in a forest high above Bad Nauheim after a steep climb. Elvis lived in this area when he was in the Army. The town and the surrounding countryside are quite picturesque, and historic. There are Roman ruins just to left side of this picture in the forest.

I was smiling on the inside. On the outside, my face was saying "this is not Virginia, that hill was steep!" The jersey is the one I won in one of your paint naming contests. Great jersey. Thanks.

Bike Friday, my Pocket Rocket is like a rolling dream catcher. Thanks for helping me to catch my dream.
