About Us

Who are you?

We’re two Canadians who love to cycle and travel, and in 2012 we decided to roll those passions into one by getting Bromptons! Now that we have bikes we can fold up and bring anywhere, we’re exploring the world on two wheels and sharing our adventures here.

What’s on the site?

Our experiences traveling with Bromptons, whether that’s cycling cross-country (like in Cuba) or multimodal travel from city-to-city with bikes, trains, ferries and planes.

Traveling Adventures – This is where we post about the places we’ve traveled on our Bromptons. The category is divided into subcategories based on country. We always try to include details about our route, helpful tips, and lots of photos.

Local Adventures – We don’t just ride our Bromptons when we leave home, we ride them all around Toronto too! So this is where we post local stuff, like the Brompton Urban Challenge Toronto, cycling on the PanAm Path (coming soon!), and the best places to ride in our city.

Bike Stuff – This is a catch-all category for posts about Brompton bike specs, cycling gear and components.

What’s next?

In 2018 we’re planning to visit Chicago in the spring and Quebec City in late summer or fall. We’ll also do more posts about cycling in Toronto, because despite the uphill battle with local politicians to install more bike lanes, it’s got a lot of excellent places to ride one’s Brompton.

Hey there! I am one of the guys from Toronto that you met at the Piño Colada stand by the bridge. How did your trip go? I am curious if it all went well as it sounded very interesting. I have a few pics of us having a piño colada that I can send if you want to send back your email address.

Cheers.
Fred

Hi Fred! Glad you found us. Pier has sent you an email so you can send the pics. Can’t wait to see them! I’m slowly posting blogs about our trip, so stayed tuned!

First of all, very nice page and pictures. This is great story. Always nice seeing fellow Bromptoneers going all over the world on cycling adventures. Should you ever happen to travel to NYC area, please get in touch with us. I included our Brompton club page as well. This route looks like a lot of fun

Thanks so much, Newton! We very much want to visit New York. I (Heather) went over a decade ago, long before all the new cycling infrastructure was installed, so I really want to go back and check that out. I’ve bookmarked the #BromptonNYC Meetup page, so we will for sure get in touch with you guys when we are in NYC!
