The Brompton Riders ready to go..
I got my Brompton on 29/9/2011 just a day before my 59th birthday.The next day, we have a ride together with a few friends who bought Brompton bicycles much earlier than me.Our group is open to all types of bicycles.
As more and more people started to buy and ride Brompton, a few of my friends formed MBM and I joined the group as an ordinary member.Personally, I prefer just to be riding with my friends, irrespective of their bicycle types and brands. Cycling is more important than the bicycle.However, when it comes to portability and involved travel with car or train or aeroplane, I must admit that Brompton is my top choice.However, for general purpose cycling, I prefer Batavus from Holland.If I were to go bike touring, then the American Surly may be my preferred choice.
Brompton is very British and only made in west London.It has its own cult. And being more than 40 years old, it has developed its own culture and riders set up Brompton Cycling Groups all over the world.Just like the Mac computers.
