Meet & Mingle!

DUE TO THE WEATHER, I will meet everyone at the BicycleSpace store instead of the Mt. Vernon Metro.

Thanks!

NOTE:  BicycleSpace has changed the time of this event to be 5:00 p.m., due to the weather.  So let's meet at the Metro at 4:45 p.m.  If you want, you can drive and try to find parking in the area, and meet at the store.   I will be leaving the Metro station at 4:45.     Thanks!

This Sunday at 5:00 p.m., the BicycleSpace store in DC will be announcing they will be hosting the U.S. Brompton Championship Race this July, and unveiling a Limited Edition Brompton!

The weather is predicted to be iffy, so I don't think we will be riding, but I thought it'd be fun if everyone show up in "Brompton Race Attire" to show our support! The "Race Attire" is simply wearing a tie (or bow tie) and a business suit jacket. We will make an impression, I'm sure, and get people "in the mood"! :) See pictures of what previous Brompton racers wore at the Championship race held in Minneapolis last year: https://www.google.com/search?q=calhoun+cycle+brompton+race&rlz=1C1SKPC_enUS345US571&espv=2&es_sm=122&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=ztYyU4DQF5DisASh3IH4Aw&ved=0CEsQsAQ&biw=1366&bih=677 As you can see, the race participants made their attire Wild & Crazy! :) So feel free to let your Wild Side out! :)

Let's meet up together at the Mt. Vernon Square Metro (upper street level) and then ride the couple of blocks to the store.

BicycleSpace will be providing beverages for our toasting the hosting of the U.S. Brompton Championship Race of 2014! :)

Hope to see you there this Sunday afternoon! :)

    What does the 25th anniversary B look like?

      Hi Todd - the Brompton didn't really look much different....as you can see from the pictures taken and posted...it was a bronze color, and the Brompton sticker on the bike had a silver "25" in it. That's about all the difference I could see, really. Seems like they could have done something a little more? :)

    We had a good group of hardy Bromptonites show up as the SNOW was falling outside! We enjoyed meeting new Bromptonites and chatting about our bikes. It was cool to see the Limited Edition Brompton for our viewing, and great that BicycleSpace's photographer was there to take pictures of the event!

    Great event! Thanks to Bicycle Space for a fun evening. Charmaine took the award for quickest fold(er)! I crashed and burned with the damn folding pedal.

    Happy I was able to get some biking in yesterday. Ready for spring and warmer weather. Like Christopher below, I will venture out rain or shine to check out this new limited edition Brompton.
