While at NAHBS one of the busier booths all three days was that of Brompton. Brompton is a folding bicycle company out of West London, England. They are actually built in England and take great pride of their English background. Their bikes span a wide spectrum and meet many peoples needs for the folding bike market.
Brompton also holds a bicycle race in England, they call it a World Championship. I will call it amazing entertainment. Guys and gals in tweed or full suits, with racing shoes and helmets going full speed on these mini wheeled Bromptons. This year they will be holding a U.S. Championship in Philadelphia, PA on March 20th.
Brompton US Championship 2010
The Philly Phlyer Collegiate and USA Cycling Race Weekend are pleased to host the first annual Brompton US Championship. Registration is now open; there are only 100 places available….. these will be administered on a first come first served basis.
The race is to be held on Saturday 20th March, 2010, at the Memorial Hall, West Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
The event is inspired by the British based Brompton World Championship, currently in its fifth year; the US event is a qualifier of sorts, the fastest male and female riders will win flights and entry to the UK event in October.
