Brompton World Championship -The London bike ride
The cycle run started from Jubilee Gardens by the London Eye. About 50 Brompton owners turned up to cycle around the Southbank, Fleet Street, Bank and back again. Everyone I met had travelled either from outside London or from abroad. I met people who use their Bromptons, in Geneva, Milan and New York.
I felt guilty about not using the Brompton beyond London when clearly this bike can be taken around the world. I heard a rumour that the Championship is considering going to Japan. I will like to go to the Championship next year, if it is still in the UK.
