    I do it, because I figure they need to learn that's what people are supposed to do. But I do it in my best kindergarten-teacher-cum-peter-pan-cum-barney-the-dinosaur-cum-Mr. Rogers voice. ;)

    I wouldn't do it - that stretch terrifies me when I'm driving, I wouldn't go near it on a bike. I'd stick to the back roads. YMMV.

    Certainly not one that's worth the money spent. Cheapo folders are the worst, even worse than department-store regular bikes.

    I would say sometimes 2, usually 3.
