Brompton World Championships 2024 is coming.

So this weekend we will be all a Brompton buzz (pun intended)

Tomorrow we can actually register for the race & also go on a social ride with a ride orgazined between the London Brompton Club & Brompton Ltd. So what to expect on race day itself? Well lots of fellow Brompton riders and talking about the wonderful Brompton bike.

Below is the Brompton World Championships back in 2015 in Central London

It will be a fun weekend and hopefully the weather will hold and be a totally great weekend and see ALOT of my Brompton family that i haven’t seen in a good few years.

Just have to figure out which B im going to take 😂 

till the next ride, bee safe.....

My wahoo is dead :(

So today while I was commuting home on N+1 (Brompton C Line BumbleBee) and we had our first little accident.
We was riding home from a hard days work and it had briefly rained about 10 mins before hand and the roads where a little wet. I go though a park as a short cut and currently there are big works going on there and the cycle lane has been diverted across some grass using hard plastic sheets so it won't get to muddy. For the moment I don't have a proper GPS mount on the new bike so had it in my pocket to keep my miles logged for Strava etc. Well I went across the wet plastic boards and the front wheel stepped out and we went over. Lucky  I was going pretty slowly and banged my knee a little but nothing major. Well when I got home I took my Wahoo Elemnt out of my pocket and saw this. 

Oh well could have been much worst as in the same pocket I had my iPhone which is unhurt.

I guess I'm in the market for a new cycling GPS unit. I my go back to Garmin as I didn't really like the Wahoo Elemnt as I had to plan routes though my phone and not directly on the GPS unit itself 

Any recommendations for a nice cycling GPS? Been seeing a few adverts for the BeeLine Velo 2 which I did have a couple of years ago for a short time.

FreeCycle ride with London, Paris & Netherlands Brompton Clubs

So today was the day of the free cycle ride in central London where riders from all over the country will take part in several different rides for this today. I took part in the free cycle in central London which is basically a 4 to 5 mile loop around central London on closed roads while the other rise were 100 miles into the countryside and back again and finishing in central London we would receive a medal.

I haven't done any major cycling for a few years so didn't enter the 100 miler but opted to go to the free cycle event. Also a Paris Brompton Club & Netherlands Brompton Clubs where attending  and Brompton Junction where putting on abit of a spread for us after the ride.

What a lovely spread Brompton Junction put on for us and I have to thank them very much for having us invade the store for a couple of hrs.

Also at the time thee was alittle promotion going on where if you test rode any Brompton and signed up to their newsletter you get this free water bottle which I thought was very cool

As promised we shall be getting out and about to cycling events more in future, if work allows.

till the next ride, bee safe.....
