U.K. Meetings & Rides

Bristol Dock Ride
Please note that this replaces the Mud Dock Ride, starting from a new location.
Folder enthusiasts usually meet informally on the first Saturday of the month at The Framing Factory on the dockside in Bristol from about 10.30am onwards. The Framing Factory is just beyond the Industrial Museum, and there is a small car park between the two sites. For more information about the Framing Factory, including a location map, please see

Origami Rides
These are rides particularly intended for (though not restricted to) the owners of folding and separable cycles, including Moultons (both separable and non-separable). The rides are mostly, though not all, in the West Midlands. The meeting point now varies from month to month, with about one third of them being at the Meriden Tea Rooms (Meriden is classified as the geographic centre of England, and is easily accessible by rail and road). Meetings usually start from 10.30am for an 11.00am start. Distance covered varies, typically from 10 miles to 25 miles, depending on the weather and the preferences of those present, though just occasionally we go a shorter or longer distance. Second Saturday of every month (unless this clashes with Bank Holidays, the Moulton BoA weekend, or other major events). Check out the Origami Pages
contact Mike Hessey (Tel 01384 256173, email [email protected]) before attending an event, as the venue and timing varies.
