It's Brompton World Championship Weekend!
And sadly, Tim isn't able to go this year. Instead, he'll be riding in Baltimore's Tour du Port, spreading the word about bikes@vienna, folding bikes, and Bromptons.
However, Charmaine Ruppolt, a customer and new Brompton owner, WILL be riding tomorrow, Sunday, October 3rd, at Blenheim Palace, with 749 other Bromptoneers! So please join us in wishing her a great ride (and perhaps a higher placing than mine of last year).
Today she's participating in a factory tour, a scenic ride in London, and witnessing an award ceremony where Brompton is being presented with the Queen's Award for Enterprise in both the Innovation and International Trade categories. Apparently there's a reception with food and jazz as well. Sounds like a really great time.
Watch this space for news of Charmaine's experiences, probably on her return to the US. We'll keep you posted!
Meanwhile, enjoy photos from last year's ride here:
