From touring adventures to exploring local trails, there are many ways to enjoy cycling with your Brompton this bank holiday weekend

Easy to transport and a pleasure to ride, your Brompton is the perfect companion for a long weekend of spring cycling. We share 5 ways that you can make the most of your Brompton this May bank holiday

1. Urban adventure

The beauty of a Brompton is its ability to be easily transported. Take your iconic folder on a city break this bank holiday weekend and explore a new destination by bike. You can simply fold your Brompton to hop on public transport, meaning you can take it with you for a day of urban exploring. Whether you venture to a completely new city or spend the weekend re-discovering your hometown, you’ll enjoy the convenience of travelling with a Brompton.

2. Weekend getaway

If you’re in need of a break over the long weekend, why not fold up your Brompton and take it with you on a weekend-long staycation. Whether travelling to your destination by bus or train, you can unfold your Brompton on arrival and explore the local area at your own pace. Brompton’s are particularly well suited to camping or touring trips thanks to their brilliant portability.

3. Cycle touring

For a more adventurous weekend getaway, you can take your Brompton on a touring trip. Use our handy journey planner to help plan your multi-day cycling trip, which could include historical trails, scenic countryside paths, or one of our long-distance routes. You can choose to stay at any combination of B&B’s, hotels, or campsites along the way, with your Brompton folding up neatly to be stored safely indoors.

4. Discover your local trails

The bank holiday weekend is also a wonderful time to be a tourist in your local area. As well as being a wonderfully convenient commuter bike, the Brompton is also great for using on local cycle paths and trails. Hop on your Brompton and explore cycle paths and trails near your own home this weekend. Familiarising yourself with nearby trails can also help to build confidence in newer cyclists, or those returning to cycling after taking a break.

You could also take the weekend as an opportunity to try local cycling groups and clubs in your area. Cycling UK has a network of around 1,000 affiliate and member groups across the UK, full of like-minded people looking to share their love of cycling.
