I’m a massive bike fan. For ease of use and positive engagement with the environment around you there is no better transport option (other than walking possibly, but lets save that argument for another day). If you are in the market for an inspiring piece of writing on the power of the bicycle as an instrument of experiential understanding, even enlightenment within cities, you can go no further than Kasey Klimes.
And thats what I love about the Brompton Challenge, it combines a machine that is the perfect bicycle for the city¹ with an event that helps us to experience and understand our city with a deeper level of intimacy.
If you’re looking for a little adventure this coming weekend (Saturday 10th October) in Melbourne, you would be hard pressed to find better.
