The Hills Are Alive Tour: Sights of ‘The Sound of Music’

by Josh Lipton

To some, folding bikes sometimes look dorky and/or awkward thanks to a much smaller wheel diameter. But in many cases, looking like a dork is the price paid in order to visit many beautiful and interesting places where normal bikes are too bulky to travel.

Of course, there is always an exception to the rule such as in the case of Montague Bikes, who have managed to design full-sized folding bikes that look great.

Recently, Montague rider Hernani Cardoso undertook a journey from Austria to Bulgaria after being inspired by the amazing visuals from The Sound of Music.

The trip was long and somewhat difficult, but in his online interview with Montague Bikes, Cardoso recalls the details of his trip with clarity and enthusiasm.

Riding in and around Salzburg it is a very unique experience. The views are wonderful and you can visit all The Sound Of Music sites on a bike. Salzburg was a surprise to me and I will be glad to go back there.

To make his trip, Cardoso used an Extrawheel Voyager bike trailer with Extrawheel panniers to get his stuff across the border and through the urban and rural European terrain.
