An Open Letter to Brompton
Dear Brompton -
Your bikes are engineering genius! I love them. They work so well for commuters and regular people who want to ride a bike but don't have room to store a bike.
Why, why, why do you encourage "English attire" in your Brompton championship events? Wouldn't it make more sense to have people show up in their every-day clothes and race it out? Honestly, the whole costume-cycling thing leaves me cold and I am not participating in the MPLS Brompton event because of the dress code.
Seriously - consider encouraging people to ride in whatever they want to. That's what most Brompton people do. It would be just as much fun, I promise.
