London to Brighton by Brompton in June 2006

We received an email from Brompton today, in which it mentions that:
"We are entering a team in the London-Brighton Bike Ride on 18 June, in support of the British Heart Foundation. We already have a dozen people from the factory signed up, as well as some of our longer-standing supporters and customers, and if you are interested in taking part you would be more than welcome. Details about the London-Brighton Bike Ride 2006, and an entry form, can be found on the BHF website (link below); every rider needs to register personally, and there is a £24 charge, though of course that fee, and all sponsorship raised, goes to a very worthy cause. Please register soon as the event is booking up fast:
On the entry form, tick the "Club challenge team" box
Name of team leader: Emerson Roberts
Team name: Team Brompton
Start time: 9am
Having sent off your form, you may wish to send me an email so that I can keep you abreast of our plans in the run up to the event. We are planning to host some kind of reception for those who make it to the coast and it should be a really fun day out, not least as Bromptons are the only bikes allowed on Southern Trains on the day of the ride!
Emerson Roberts"

London to Brighton is rather too far away from where I live for me to enter, but I hope that lots of Bromptoneers will take part and have a good day. Emerson also mentions in his email that they hope to revamp their web site later this year.
