The first virtual #BromptonWorldChallenge was taken up and enjoyed by many riders from all over the globe. I hope some of our readers participated in the fun! There were some truly outstanding entries for the different challenges, not lease of which was the #FastestFold! Woooweeee! 4.392 seconds! Check it out here: https://twitter.com/BromptonBicycle/status/1298677606557061120?s=20
Definitely the hottest contested of all the challenges. As with all BWC events – whether that’s a Brompton World Championship or Challenge – the golden rule when it comes to attire is no Lycra allowed! (Well, none that anyone’s allowed to see without being immodest, anyway.)
Hot on the heels of Best Dressed for most entries submitted was Best Scenery.
There’s only one entry (thanks Cory!) and you’ll need to click on this link and swipe (R->L) to see the fastest fold.
Compared to some from around the world, the Melbourne Exhibition Building (Carlton Gardens) is almost sea level. But when you can only travel 5km in any direction…
I had hoped that we’d see a few pooches – maybe even a kitty kat – taking part in this one, but it was just me and my Kiwi. I don’t think he minded being stuffed into the Game Bag because, let’s face it, he was already pretty stuffed.
Cheering from the sidelines, and not *quite* taking part were a few extra Brompton riders. We hope you feel confident enough to step onto the field and join in all the fun next time. I’ve also included a couple of other photos that were shared but didn’t obviously link to a challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone for your great contributions! Everyone clearly had fun being involved. Voting for your favourite photos is being conducted on our Facebook group page (click here); prizes will be sent out at the end of the week.
Stay safe and keep riding! 😀
