It is not that light and I would not recommend going for the version without gears, as hills are a nightmare with it.

The Apollo Folding bike will be suitable for your size. However, if the folding feature is not necessary for your needs you may find a bike with a larger wheel size is more suitable for to your needs. Should you require any further assistance please go to your local Halfords store where a member of staff will be happy to help you further.

No unfortunately not. The bike child seats attach to the seat tube (not the seat post) of a bike and on this folding bike, the seat tube is far to low down and obstructed to attach it to. Also the bike would no be able to support the seat and the child efficiently to be safe for use.

Question
how do you fold the bike?
I bought this bike from the store more than a year ago, haven't rode it out yet. I have been thinking to get back into cycling but I need to work out how to fold the bike and is it safe to use after I haven't touched it for about 16-18 months?

First undo the catch on the cross bar near the pedals. Flip the small black clip(which stops the connection coming loose) away from the longer black clasp. Then lift up the clasp from the front end in order to release it from the rear mounting and loosen it from the folding joint.
Now fold the front end of the bike back on itself, so that the front wheel is approximately alongside the rear wheel.
Then undo the chrome catch on the steering column by flipping up the chrome lever and allowing the lever mechanism to drop downwards through the slot at 90 degrees to its original position. You can now fold the steering column down. It needs to end up on the right side of the bike(as you sit on it) so you have to be careful not to tangle up the brake cables on the seat.
Then you can fold down the right pedal by depressing the spring lever inside the pedal. This stops the pedal jutting out and takes up less width. This only applies to the right pedal.
Lastly, you can also lower the seat by loosening the catch on the seat column, but I never usually bother with this as height is seldom a problem, unless you need to get it on a luggage rack with limited vertical space.
I find the left pedal often jams against the front wheel when folded. If this happens you need to raise the back wheel off the ground and move the pedals round. It happens when you try and wheel the folded bike backwards...don't do that! If you need to wheel the folded bike, wheel it only on the front wheel avoiding ground contact with the back wheel.

how much does the apollo 20" folding bike weigh?

answer 1
The Apollo 20" Folding Bike is not manufactured to a controlled weight.
Minor variations in the weights of the numerous individual components fitted to the frame can accumulate to provide significant variance in the overall weight of the bike.
An indicative weight of 13.0Kg has been obtained by weighing a sample of this model, but as explained above individual bike weights will vary.

The Apollo Folding Bike is single speed and has a steel frame, that is why it is cheaper than the Apollo Transition for example which has 5 speed gears and a lighter weight alloy frame

Yes, child bike seats can be fitted to the Apollo 20" folding bike, but the bike will not be able to be folded completly when the bike seat is attached.
It is likely that when the bike is trying to be folded the handlebars would be obsturcted by the child bike seat.

Question
Can you e-mail/send instructions for use.
I bought the last bike on Saturday from my local Halfords (unboxed) therefore received no instruction leaflet with the bike. I hasten to add that I was shown how to fold and unfold the bike - but upon trying myself it's a bit sticky and I'm scared to pull anything in case I break it. If there is such a leaflet I would be grateful if this could be e-mailed or posted to me.
