Brompton wins Queen's award for Enterprise

It's "completely barking" to manufacture bicycles in London, Brompton managing director Will Butler Adams joked when interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Today program (21st April 2010). He was being interviewed after the announcement that Brompton were one of the recipients of the 2010 UK Queen’s Awards For Enterprise. He also indicated that it took him "about 8.7 seconds" to fold his Brompton - not that he'd ever timed himself!

Twickenham Origami - Ride report

In the first visit to the Nation's capital the Origami ride visited Twickenham and took in part of the Thames path, which we shared with walkers, runners, dogs and other cyclists. The ride attracted only one Londoner, but we did welcome Tilman from Germany and the return of "Aussi Dave" with friend Judith. It was demonstrated that even a Moulton APB should not be mistaken for a BMX, but we enjoyed a very pleasant ride along the Thames. Full details here.
