THE CONVENIENT CYCLIST

A cycling day in Seattle with KING5

A couple of weeks ago, Andrew Coleman Smith and Kelly Hanson visited the Flatbike office in Kirkland, WA. They film Local Lens Seattle on KING5 and were doing a segment on great places to bike in Seattle.

And what better way to get around the city than with a CHANGE bike?

In particular, they wanted to experience whether a lightweight, well-geared aluminum bike with the ability to fold in half added to the enjoyment of a cycling day trip around Seattle.

Does folding really make that much difference in the experience?

From a Flatbike perspective, this visit was great, because nobody can simplify the four step-process of folding (wheel, pedals, latch, fold) like expert video folks.

They even had a random passerby at Green Lake unfold a CHANGE bike when they took the bikes out of a sedan trunk–that’s right, both bikes in the same trunk.

And then the fun started.

Green Lake, Alki Beach, the Seattle Urban Loop (including a 15-foot troll up a steep hill from the trail), and eventually, Golden Gardens.

It was a long, enjoyable day. Their car was also a long way away by now, which might be a big problem except for this…

How did that help? See for yourself on Local Lens Seattle:
