Orange Brompton Goes to the Nocturne 2015

Today I received the new that I would be going to my 5th London Nocturne Folding Bike Race. I cannot tell you how happy I am to hear this and it has served to lift me in sprits after some difficult past few weeks.

Below I have posted my past blog posts and some of the video footage captured on heats and finals - which I have been fortunate enough to get in to a few times.

As you will discover if you read my blog posts, the one word I associate with this fine event is 'pure.' There is nothing more I can use to describe it but it is raw, brutal and intoxicating and one of THE highlights of my year. In short I absolutely love it and along with the Brompton World Championships it is something that brings an overpowering sense of glee.

I suspect that my thought will be dominated by this event next week as I countdown to race day.

  1. There's a place that holds Brompton TTs, a racecourse. A fairly recent winner is Roberto Heras, former Tour de France lieutenant of Lance Armstrong, and Tour of Spain winner...

  2. I also signed up, this will be my first event on a Brompton and I've been following your blog for over a year now, so I'm quite excited meeting everyone!

  3. Mr. O,
    I will be at the race, in spirit, cheering you on.
    Ride strong my brother!
    Peace :)
