‘The secret is belief. Belief in the youth, belief in myself and belief in my team.’
If you're thinking of taking on our epic cycling challenge, you may consider using a well-known bike that is not frequently spotted in the UK sportive crowd. Newly confirmed sponsors of Ride Around London, Brompton are encouraging their customers to get involved with the challenge:
Newly confirmed sponsors and community partners of Ride Around London, Brompton are encouraging their customers to get involved with the challenge:
“We are really pleased to be supporting Access Sport, their Ride Around London and by extension the work they do. At Brompton Bicycle everything we do, in terms of design, product development and corporate philosophy, is to enhance the freedom and independence of those that ride our bikes. We were quick to appreciate that Access Sport promote these same values through the work they do with the community groups they support. Inclusive challenges are something we very much believe in, anyone should be able to get on a bike and see what they can achieve; our own events have a similar attitude, you will see world class athletes riding with people that have just returned to cycling after several years. A number of Brompton staff have already signed up to take part in the Ride Around London and we expect that other Bromptoneers will want to take part too. We expect this event to be a huge success.”
Katharine Horsman, Brompton Marketing Manager
Access Sport are delighted to have this iconic brand as part of the Ride Around London team. Their support will help the people of London to get behind the event and celebrate the fantastic diversity of the capital's cycling community. Riders on the start line will join people with all sorts of different bikes, from fixies to Boris bikes and even a BMX. We hope lots of Brompton riders will join the staff from the west London factory already committed to taking on the 115m challenge and help to raise money for the communities that need it most.
