The Brompton World Championships next Saturday

Next Saturday will see the Brompton World Championships return after nearly five years away. (It feels like longer). 

This time there is no specific dress code - apart from no cycling lycra. (Hopefully a few will adopt business attire as they have done in previous years). There will be up to 500 runners and riders and it remains to be see whether it is a full house or short of this amount. The five laps of the 900m circuit should prove to be rather interesting and add to the spectacle. It does remind me of the old London Nocturne circuit but this one will have many more turns and less straights. It might be perfect for a single speed or 2x speed rather than 3, 6 or 12 gears. 

It should be a great event. Expect to see some familiar faces from the London Brompton crew and plenty of those social media types, who have had a Brompton for all of five minutes, done absolutely nothing to write home about but will try to make out they have on their various media platforms. 

Until next time, stay safe out there people.
