Folding bicyles seem to be high on the list as the transportation of choice this week at the Family Motor Coach Association’s International Convention in Redmond, Ore.
Dozens of RVers have been spotted pedaling around the expansive Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center.
FMCA members Barry and Audrey Donnelly of Calgary, Alberta, have owned their Cayne Ramblers for two years.
“We had regular mountain bikes for years,” says Barry, “however, because we mounted them on the back of our coach, they would get road grime all over them.”
The Donnellys, who winter in the Southwest, found their folding bicycles in a Yuma, Ariz., bike shop. “These bikes are light, fold in three places and can be stored easily in the back of our Jeep Cherokee,” says Barry. “No more dirty bikes.”
“We love them,” says Audrey. “They have seven gears and give your legs a good workout.”
