    Yes - that was 3 of us on The FNRTTC Brighton trip. See you again on the Burnham or Whitstable rides perhaps.

    Hi Mr H. Still staggered at the weight of your bike! Thanks for marking the corners!

    Well, I made it up even on a higher-geared Brompton (KOM!). Mr Orange put a foot down, but made it after that (http://www.myorangebrompton.com/2013/04/london-to-brighton-on-brompton.html) & Mr BumbleBee walked a section.

    Nice write-up, LBC. That's bread pudding, BTW, not bread & butter :smile:

    Hi, I'm a journalist from the U.S., writing an article about the Brompton for Businessweek. I'll be in the U.K. to visit the factory, and had hoped to tag along on a Brompton ride. Alas, I'll be in London the week of February 25th, and there are no scheduled rides that week. Would any of you care to go on a ride with me on, say, Sunday February 23rd? If you're curious, here's a similar feature I did last year.

    I promise to be a thoroughly amusing cycling companion.

    Best,
    Brendan Greeley
