Touring Tuesday - Spain on a Montague Paratrooper Pro

Montague makes folding bicycles. Unlike most other brands of folding bikes, they use full size wheels. This means they don't fold up as small, but they ride like a regular bicycle. The blog on the Montague website features a number of articles about touring different areas on one of their bikes. One of those is about a guy touring through the Spanish Pyrenees. He rode on a Paratrooper Pro, which is a mountain bike. The article has very little text, but some interesting photos, especially the ones of Bardenas Reales. It's an arid, badlands type region, with interesting rock formations.

You can see from the photo above that the Paratrooper Pro was fully loaded for touring. You can take this folding bike anywhere you would go with a regular bicycle. When traveling with a folding bike, don't tell the airline you have a bicycle, or they will want to charge you extra.
