Save the date! Brompton Australia is bringing the Brompton Urban Challenge to Melbourne on 10 October 2015!

Brompton Urban Challenge Melbourne #BUCMEL


But what is a ‘Brompton Urban Challenge’, you ask?

Working in teams that include at least one Brompton rider (aka ‘Bromptoneer’) the Brompton Urban Challenge (“BUC”) is a scavenger hunt to find clues hidden around the city, take and post photos of  themselves (or their Bromptons) at the location, and use the most efficiently designed folding bike available (ie your Brompton) as well as various modes of transport to get between locations.

There are BUC’s being held in cities all around the world this year – not just London (where our beloved Bromptons are still made by hand) but Rotterdam, Milan, Budapest, Bern, and a number of cities in the US including New York.

Still not convinced about participating? Check out how much fun the everyone in this YouTube clip is having in this year’s London BUC:

We’ll update this post with more details about the Melbourne Brompton Urban Challenge in due course.

In the meantime, think about who you can get together with, and get excited!

UPDATE: Registration for the Brompton Urban Challenge Melbourne is up and active! Check it out, get together a team or let us team you up with other Bromptoneers.

Either way it’s going to be a great day of fun!

    I missed this new blog, Dayna. Looks great! I’m excited about the Brompton Urban Challenge, and I don’t even have a Brompton. Can’t wait to see the pics! 🙂

      Thanks Jane. I wasn’t going to shout about it until it was fully set up, but then we heard the Brompton Urban Challenge announcement/confirmation, so I thought it was better to get something out there. It’s still definitely a blog in progress. I hope our other members will also contribute some posts occasionally (*hint, hint* MBC members!) 🙂

    10am start time has been confirmed. Where you actually start you’ll learn shortly prior to the day, but it will be an iconic spot in Melbourne City.
