The eve of the Grand Union Canal ride on a Brompton

Tomorrow I will be meeting other Bromptonians at Richmond for a leisurely cycle mainly along the Grand Union Canal.

The route will take us past the place of origin for all our Brompton bikes - the Brompton Factory in Brentford. We will almost certainly stop and take a few photos before moving on but we won't be going in. Brompton are far too busy making bicycles for that. It will be great to ride past the factory though with so many other Bromptonians.

We will eventually end up at Paddington. The distance will be 20 miles - a breeze for me nowadays - and will be fairly flat. We aim to finish 14:00 - 15:00 and will of course have some sort of luncheon.

I am looking forward to it and it will be great to meet up with some familiar and new faces. I hope to take my Ricoh GRD IV with me so expect lots of photos at some point in a future blog.
