Bike Friday owners Bob Stockinger and Mary E. Duffy are world travelers, as well as organizers of a Tandem Rally in France each year.
They told Bike Consultant Ruthy Kanagy that Bike Fridays are popular in France. They sent Ruthy this email:
“Mary and I wanted to let you know that the Tandem Club of France’s most common model is the Bike Friday tandem.
“We were at the annual meeting of the club this past weekend and there were four Bike Friday tandems. No other mark was even close to four.
“We ride our Co-Motion tandem here and use our Bike Fridays when we are touring the world. We spent four weeks in India two years ago and this past winter we were eight weeks in Thailand.
“Other than one fast downhill blowout they continue to be wonderful to see the world on.”
