Folding Footballers

Long-time cycling, Moulton and folder enthusiast Graham McDermott reports:
"Further to your report that Premiership club Fulham's German defender, Moritz Volz, owns a folding bike. I can confirm that he actually arrived to play in last night's home game against Bolton riding his folder. It was badged "Trek", but looked very much like a Dahon Groove."
Dahon design, and in some cases manufacture, folders for other companies. Good to hear that high profile people are using folders as as serious means of transport (given my own age, I feel compelled to remind readers that some VIPs used Moultons as a serious means of transport back in the 1960's - Lord Hailsham being an obvious example).
