Folding Bikes for Your Boat

Getting away from it all

You’ve got your next boat trip planned. Whether you’re going to visit calm, idyllic islands for the relaxation or busy seaside cities for the urban experience and the nightlife, you’ll still face the same issue. How do you get to where the action is, off the water?

A set of bicycles provides not only a quick way to get into town and restock on provisions, but also an opportunity to immerse yourselves in the places you’ve come so far to visit. The choice now becomes whether to get a full-size bike or a folding bike. A full-size bike offers more flexibility in where you can ride and how far.

Bike in the elements
But full-size bikes out in the elements are going to rust and fail. It’s a fact of life.

A folding bike, on the other hand, fits below deck where you can keep it free of rust and corrosion. You just have to settle for pothole-sized wheels and having all your gearing used to overcome smaller wheels. What about a full size bike that disassembles, like the Ritchey Breakaway?

A CHANGE bike offers the best of both worlds. First, it’s a certified-rugged full-size bike, in commuter, hybrid, or mountain bike models.

How’s this for rugged?

And when you’re done, it fits under the salon table when you’re in port or a storage locker below when you’re underway.

Then, when you’re done exploring, your bike folds in half to fit inside. Even if you choose to mount it above deck, it takes up half the space and fits in a carry bag to keep your bike cleaner, drier, and more fun to ride when you’re ready.
