So you’ve just bought your new Brompton. Congratulations, we know you’re going to love it! There are lots of fun activities you can do with your new folding bike, and with a Brompton the possibilities are almost endless. Here are a few ideas to get you started and some of our favorite applications of Brompton usage.
Go On A Vacation
Take your new folding bike with you on your next trip, and you won’t be disappointed. The Brompton easily fits on a plane or in a car. There’s no better way to explore a new place than by bike – walking is too slow and you might miss something interesting if you’re in a car. Want to stop somewhere for lunch? Fold your bike up and take it into the cafe with you. Bonus: you’ll burn those extra calories while riding to make room for more vacation treats.
Join A Brompton Rider’s Club
If you live in or near an urban city area, there is a good chance that there’s a Brompton club you can join and meet up with. Ride, mingle, and make friends with your fellow Brompton lovers – it’s a great way to get out there and get social. You can find these clubs on meetup.com and similar websites.
Complete A Bike Ride
Some people may be surprised to learn that you can use a Brompton in many popular bike rides. Some of our customers have completed many century rides, Ragbrai, Seattle To Portland, and of course the Brompton World Championship on their Bromptons. They are just as capable as big wheeled bikes, and can keep up with the best of them!
Commute To Work
Biking to work is a great way to save on gas and get some exercise. And with your new Brompton, it’s super easy! When you get to the office, just fold up your bike and tuck it under your desk, or any other small space at your place of business. It’s a cheaper, greener way to get to work each day.
