The urban cycling theme continued


I learned about Brompton Bicycles (the antithesis of my new bike) during our England sabbatical.  There was a bicycle shop around the corner from our terrace house on Norwich Street which featured Bromptons prominently in its window.  Bromptons posing quietly in a shop window, however, are not nearly as interesting as watching a commuter cycle up to the station, step on the train to London, fold his or her Brompton…then unfold it at King’s Cross and cycle away out of the station and into the city.

So, here’s some British bike fun: the Brompton World Championship 2011 held at Blenheim Palace.
