Bike Friday on tour. Al-Faw Palace, Iraq. This is my Bike Friday folding bike that I have used in Iraq, Afghanistan, North Carolina, and Germany. It has several thousand miles on it, most in and around commuting on these large bases. I was able to travel quicker on the Bike Friday than in a vehicle due to the ability to take short cuts and avoid the masses of SUVs. I am in battle rattle for this photo which was common in the 2004-2005 time period at Camp Victory due to the threat level.
