The man behind the legend

While we was at the Brompton World Championships we was approached by Kris HM Gomeze who is the owner & publisher of Bicycles United Magazine & Steven Lim from MightyVelo in Singapore.
They said to me that they have always enjoyed reading this blog and Kris wanted to interview me for her online magazine.

Kris HM Gomeze & the Legend

The legend & I was very touched by this couldn't for the life of us think why would anyone want an interview. After talking for a few minutes I realised that the legend & I have a pretty big following in the far east & many read this little crazy blog of mine.

So we arranged to meet the following day as it was pretty crazy at the Brompton World Championships.

We talked about everything from how I started cycling and why I choose the Brompton Bicycle. How a simple Brompton became a living LEGEND & how the London Brompton Club started

After what seemed like a few minutes which was actually a couple of hrs (time flies when your having fun eh) BBB got some attention as always.

Even while we was travelling to and from Look Mum, No Hands for the interview a few cyclist passing (returning from the Surrey Ride 100) said they had seen us at the Brompton World Championships the previous day. Well we was kinda hard to miss :D

Just before we left, Steven gave me a nice little surprise of these great Brompton Badges, carry strap & a special bike badge celebrating Singapore's 50th year of independence.  They will have pride of place on the legend soon.

Like I've always said we love meeting new people and have met alot of people from all over the world from all walks of life doing the one thing we all love doing.

Riding our little Brompton Bicycles.

I don't think Andrew Ritchie had any idea what he started back in the 70's but I'm sure am glad he did as I wouldn't be having so much fun on this crazy small wheeled bicycle & making so many new friends.
