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 (like in The Netherlands).

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 about local events, like the Brompton Urban Challenge Toronto, and review city cycling routes, such as the PanAm Path, Waterfront Trail and Finch Hydro Corridor.

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

What’s next?

In 2018 we cycled Chicago in the spring and Yucatan, Mexico over the Christmas holidays. In 2019, we just did Local Adventures because we’re saving up for a trip to Hawai’i! A friend is getting married there in March 2020, and of course we are going to bring our Bromptons.

To keep up with our adventures, you can follow us on social media or subscribe by entering your email at the bottom of this page.

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!

Thank you so much to share this page – very interesting to read about your cycling in the Netherlands seen from your point of (Toronto) view. I enjoy following you.
Have a good trip

Awesome! Although I don’t enjoy much adventure, I’ve found your pages so interesting! How about Seoul as your next travel ? Fall would be a perfect season!

Hi Kimmy! We’d love to travel to Seoul one day, but it’s an expensive plane trip so we need to save up. Hopefully in the next few years we’ll have enough money for a trip to Asia. 🙂
