A lovely Brompton ride for two

We took our Bromptons out for a quick spin yesterday afternoon. Only from Canary Wharf to St. Katherine Docks, but it was great to get outside (in advance of an evening in front of the TV) and enjoy a brief sunny interlude while enjoying a drink at Starbucks.

The only challenge? Dealing with the cobblestones we encountered all across Wapping. Not a Brompton’s best friend!

Looking forward to some longer rides in the near future. I’m really pleased with my new S3L – it’s a very nippy and comfortable ride and the additional of a great little carrying handle from OffyerBike.com makes it super easy to carry around.

I’m really delighted that the two bikes can fit really easily side-by-side under our hallway cabinet. They can also be stored, in their respective bags, in the hallway cupboard, completely out of sight. We were toying with the idea of getting a new cabinet to store them in, but this solution is more elegant – and a lot cheaper!

Only one decision left on my Brompton-related shopping list. I have some gift vouchers for a local bike shop. Should I used them to upgrade my saddle to a Brooke’s model, or get a Brompton S-bag for carrying around my stuff for work?

  1. I would’ve thought the saddle most important. Surely needs to be as comfy as possible 🙂

    1. I agree – but after a couple of rides, I think I’m happy with the saddle it came with. But we shall see in the coming weeks 🙂

      1. Just looked at the menu for that place in Soho you were talking about in a recent post. Looks lovely. Might talk Mr. S into breakfast
