I went on an adventure to Thailand to find out whether a folding bike was actually capable for hard yakka bicycle touring. It turns out that they’re easily capable enough to ride one of the most difficult road loops in the world, the Mae Hong Son. This loop boasts 4000 bends, 13000m of climbing, 20 to 30%(!) gradients – all over a 660km distance. It is picturesque, challenging and just lots, and lots of fun.
