Share your Brompton story with RACV!

Every Brompton owner has a fascinating story to share about how they found out about Brompton bicycles, how they use them, their usual rides, where they’ve taken them, their modifications, and the list goes on. I’ve had the opportunity and pleasure to meet and share a ride and conversation with many of you; I know those stories are there and just waiting to be shared!

If you live in Victoria and regularly/semi-regularly use your Brompton multi-modally, particularly at the start and/or end of your public transport trip, we want to hear from you!

If you’re also ok with being interviewed and photographed for the RACV RoyalAuto magazine, we’d love to hear from you ASAP!

Either way, please email me at melbournebromptonclub@gmail.com

Brompton Hot Lap – Sunday 16 December 2019

Brompton Australia and Brompton Junction have organised to hold a “Brompton Hot Lap” as part of the prestigious Shimano Super Crit event.

Registrations for the event are now closed, but supporters are most welcome to come and cheer our Brompton riders on!

If you’d like to meet up and ride to the venue as a group, please meet on Webb Bridge at 11:00am (meeting time brought forward 30min in response to change of estimated race start time). We’ll take a quick photo and then head over to White Street, Port Melbourne.

If you’d prefer to meet at at the Super Crit, please ensure you are there With your Brompton and ready to ride by noon. The exact start time of our race depends on how punctual the prior races have started and finished, so be advised that there may be a wait of up to an hour. (This lead up time is a great time to practice you unfold!)

The format of the Brompton Hot Lap will be similar to a Brompton Championship race with a “Le Mans style” start where the riders race to their Bromptons, unfold, and then ride one lap (2.2km) as fast, or slow, as they like.

The circuit is held on closed-road roads in South Melbourne. This year our riders can choose to dress to impress, for comfort, or for speed.

With 5000 spectators expected for the Super Crit, your support as a rider or spectator is greatly appreciated.

See you there! 😀

Brompton Junction Melbourne – Now Open!

This past weekend saw the official opening of our beautiful new Brompton Junction store! Check out the simply awesome video Stanley compiled from our VIP opening night:

Members and guests who visited our Brompton Junction over the weekend were treated to some delicious British fare (scones with jam and cream, tea, or cold beverages) courtesy of Velo Cycles. There were also some freebies to take home in the form of celebratory tote bags, Brompton Junction Melbourne water bottles, and Melbourne Brompton Club pins (the latter courtesy of Stephen Powell).

Don’t despair if you weren’t able to visit this past weekend; we still have some give-aways and some 3-speed Bromptons with fantastic Grand Opening prices! These are limited in number and handlebar heights so if you’re interested, be sure to contact our store quickly!

Don’t forget that you can locate Brompton Junction Melbourne at 755 Nicholson Street, Carlton North, VIC 3054, (about 200m closer to the city from where the Capital City Trail bike path crosses Nicholson Street).
