I didn’t get to have a lesson today at the Greenwich Cycle Training. Instead we went out for a ride along the Thames Cycle Path towards Thames Mead. The Brompton held its own on the off road sections of the path. I may have found a convert to the Brompton. K asked me lots of questions about the bike and is considering getting one. However L keeps referring to my Brompton as ‘not a proper bike’. I politely said nothing.
