ID Program Relied on Bicycle.

A DAHON folding mountain bike was used to tour the 3000 acre Bahamas Star Farm where the wild horses of Abaco tend to congregate.

Lunch, water, binoculars, camera equipment, notebook, respirator and tools created about a 35 lb. load.At least 60 per cent of the riding done was completely off the road, occasionally through saddle high weeds.

Between February and March, 1997 an average of 30 miles a day, four days a week for three weeks enabled Rehor to identify the (then) 22 horses. The rough terrain often caused as many as four falls per trip.

The bicycle survived with only a broken spoke, one new inner tube, and a general tune up. Click here for more photos of the bicycle and the terrain.
