Good on you Jessica - having a folder is not like having another bike. I also find that people who might otherwise "cross the street to avoid me" will strike up a conversation when I'm out with my folder - folders are kinda special bikes, maybe friendlier :)

You might also be interested in the various Brompton groups around the country too - Brisbane Brompton Club, Gold Coast Brompton Riders, Sydney Brompton Club and Melbourne Brompton Club. Those groups, like this one, are fairly active (from time to time).

Hi, I'm new to Brisbane Cyclist and also a new owner of a pale pink Brompton (Prudence). Completely thrilled with her as I can now get to and from work with a combination of bike and train, regardless of the time of day. 

I am discovering however that folders are somewhat of a novelty in Brisbane and I'm getting used to the impromptu conversations and the odd looks, especially on the train.

Spring has sprung, and with the Brisbane Fest and Open House behind us, I reckon we can sneak a folder ride in on Saturday October 15 before the lycra society assemble on Sunday for their thigh thundering sojourn to Gold Coast.

If you're up for our own little river looping and small wheels parade, pop by here to rsvp:

Here's to the Brompton and to Crocs!

He, he. Looks like a great trip with good weather, food and people and 'Crocs' is mentioned no less than 4 times!

I am very impressed and it seems your hosts were as well with your choice of footwear.

Here's to the Brompton and to Crocs!

I am inspired by you all.
