London, life and Brompton folding bikes

I’ve realised that I never got around blogging about some changes in my life recently. First, I have moved to central London. I still work for Wessex, but now do so remotely, visiting the offices once a fortnight (or more often if needed for a meeting there or elsewhere). I am loving London so far – so much to see and do – all of the time.

Secondly, I have bought a Brompton folding bike to assist with said journeys to Salisbury, and for general travelling around in London, and I love it.

My Brompton

So, you can expect plenty of posts on Bromptons and London in the near future 🙂

  1. How long does it take to ride the Bromton from London to Salisbury?

    Or do you just ride it to Waterloo???

    • About 9 hours or so.

      No, I ride it to Waterloo, then take it on the train to Salisbury, then ride up to work. It’s about 17 miles total cycling.

      I’ve used my Brompton a fair bit to explore the area where I live, and it’s great to be able to fold it up and take it into a shop. The bag stays in place while it folds, and you can tow the folded bike like a trolley. Next time I’m in Salisbury, I’ll pop round with it 🙂
