Riding A Folding Bike

At first glance, it might not look easy to ride a folding bike. In fact, it might look down right impossible to ride a folding bike. Especially if the folding bike you are looking at is currently folded. Some folding bikes are very small, and unbelievably compact. These folding bikes can be placed in closets, under the bed, and even in suitcases.
