    North Devon Folding Bike Festival 2018

    Just came across this event if anyone is interested in participating.

    http://www.foldingbikefest.co.uk/

    From the blurb:

    "The North Devon Folding Bike Festival is a three day event for folding bike enthusiasts, that aims to bring like minded cyclists together to showcase the truly wonderful opportunities for cycling this area has to offer."

    "North Devon Folding Bike Festival will include organised bicycle routes, an integrated route using public transport, and participation in North Devon’s premier cyclosportive “The Smuggler” with a folding bike only route. With our partners we will deliver a memorable weekend suitable for folding bike enthusiasts and “regular” cyclists alike.

    The weekend kicks off on Friday with a short familiarisation ride followed by an optional dinner in the cyclosportive marquee on the iconic square in Barnstaple. Local traders will provide our meal, and guests can relax, get to know each other, swap tall (and even taller) tales, and prepare for the serious business of the Saturday and Sunday rides.

    If you’d like to discover beautiful North Devon, in the company of like minded cyclists, we think this could be the event for you!"

    The only reason I got rid was being in hilly Cornwall. I keep eyeing up the Rohloff conversions by Kinetics up in Scotland.

    Have a look at the titanium Rohloff's conversion kits that Vostok do, though you could always fit a Shimano Alfine 11 for about half the cost

    Yep.
    It is possible to fit a deraillieur with a few mods. If I’m in lumpy territory I just use the granny ring.
