Brompton Urban Challenge: Sunday, 8/16


Save the Date! The Brompton Urban Challenge takes NYC by storm on Sunday, 8/16! This scavenger hunt + photography competition is open to all bikes, as long as one person on your team has a Brompton! Registration is live.

Calling all Bromptoneers, here is your chance to take on the Brompton Urban Challenge! The Brompton Urban Challenge is an event that will test your skill, creativity and ingenuity through a variety of fun and exciting challenges throughout the streets of New York City.

The inaugural New York City Brompton Urban Challenge is set to be a whole lot of fun. We are very excited to invite you to the Brompton Cafe to share a coffee and a donut before sending you out armed with bicycles, clues, and cameras to get creative. 

The two-wheeled scavenger hunt is open to all bicycles, but each team must feature at least one Brompton. There will be a limited number of Brompton bikes available to borrow for the day, so please indicate your interest at the time of registration. Also, the event will coincide with the city's Summer Streets initiative, so there's no excuse for not getting involved!
