Yachtsmen favour folders

We have encountered both Brompton and Bickerton bicycles in the Channel Islands. The first being three Brompton folding bikes in Victoria Street in St Anne, Alderney, which arrived by yacht.

We then met a couple while riding from St Helier to St Aubin, on Jersey, on their two vintage Bickerton folding bikes. These bikes had spent much of their lives on a canal boat, but now fitted with new tyres and arriving on a yacht. The Bickerton is notable for having different sized wheels.
