Orange Brompton Blast from the past #5 - Dunwich Dynamo

The Dunwich Dynamo is an annual cycling event.  Legend has it that it all started back in 1993 when a group of London bicycle messengers left London from Hackney Fields for the Sussex coast - some 112 miles away. The only thing that is organised are the coaches back to London (if you choose to use them) and part from that it is more or less organic.

I have a bit of a love hate thing going on with the Dunwich Dynamo and I suppose lots of that has to do with the getting back to London part.  I have completed it four times all with fellow Brompton rider and gentleman that is Geoff.

I first met Geoff back in 2012 when we went on a London to Cambridge ride. Since then we have been on countless nocturnal adventures to various coastal towns. It is no exaggeration that in all five of the Dunwich Dynamo rides I have completed, I could not have done it without him. Thanks Geoff!

I was due to do it all again later this year in July but I have my doubts as to whether this will go ahead with the current situation the world finds itself in. We'll see.

Below are links to blog posts of the Dunwich Dynamo rides I have completed to date should you care to.
