Hat and sandals
Today was my first trip on the Brompton for over a week. I was working from home this past week and any trips I made were done by car. I also had to deal with a roofing and garden crisis. The climbing Jasmine shrub at the back of my house had invaded the roof and guttering which caused a flood. I can’t believe that 7 days ago in London it was cold and raining. But that’s spring weather in London for you.
I have brought a straw trilby hat from GAP along with a pair of strappy sandals to cope with cycling in the sun and heat. The sandals are more secure than cycling in flip flops. I got a pair in black too. Having used my Trek bike yesterday I was taken off guard at the speed of my little Brompton. My hat nearly flew off as I was freewheeling down hill.
Speaking of speeding Bromptons I see that the Japanese Brompton Championship is next week on the 30th May and the World Brompton Championship will be in October 2010. Registration is open to the latter from now. Hmm. Do I enter this year?
