Ride & Brompton Maintenance Class

Greetings Fellow Bromptonites!

The Spring season has been slow to warm up...but I am hoping in a couple weeks, we will have better weather.  Everyone will have done their taxes, so they should be more free to ride.

For our first ride of the year, I would like to suggest meeting at the parking lot of Bikes@Vienna bike store.  We will do an out-and-back 10-15 mile bike ride on the W&OD, catch an early dinner at Plaka Grill (http://www.plakagrill.com/index.html) and then hop back over to Bikes@Vienna, because....

Bikes@Vienna just announced that they will hold a Brompton maintenance class, which includes how to fix a flat and do other adjustments.  http://bikesatvienna.blogspot.com/2013/03/brompton-folding-bicycle-class-sunday.html  The cost of the 2-hour class (6-8 p.m.) is $45...HOWEVER, this includes your choice of a FREE bike wrench (http://www.ridepdw.com/goods/tools/3wrencho%E2%84%A2-coated) or $20 off of the Brompton Toolkit (http://www.brompton.co.uk/news/16415/brompton-toolkit-is-now-available). 

Advance registration is required for the class - so please call Tim at Bikes@Vienna [masked]) to give him your credit card info to hold your spot.  (If you live/work nearby, you can stop in anytime beforehand and register in person).

If perhaps the weather is rainy prior to the ride, I will reschedule the ride for another day, and we can still meet for the class.

I hope you can join us!

    We enjoyed a nice out-and-back on W&OD trail, along with a couple of side excursions on nearby streets. Greek dinner was great at Plaka Grill, and the Brompton maintenance class was detailed and helpful that Tim Fricker conducted. :)

    It will be a sunny day on Sunday, perfect to ride.

    Would LOVE to but my Brommie won't arrive until the end of April!

      We certainly plan to offer future classes, assuming there's enough interest. Given the fact the local Brompton community is growing by leaps and bounds, I think it's safe to assume we will.

      Curious which Brompton you decided to go with?
