Bagless Bromptons

Remember that time I wasn’t allowed to bring my Brompton folding bicycle inside the CBC?

After raising a big fuss, I was eventually allowed to bring my bike inside, with the stipulation that it must be kept in a bag. I bought a Brompton cover from our neighbourhood Brompton dealer, Switchback Cyclery, and all has been well since.

Today, Peter sent word that there’s a new BBC series called W1A in which Hugh Bonneville plays the BBC’s Head of Values. I haven’t seen the series yet, but Peter notes that Bonneville’s character is allowed to bring his Brompton into the BBC’s Broadcasting House without a cover.

    The last time I checked your blog you had just writen about the ‘Brompton Incident.’ I watched the first W1A last night and thought of you immediately. Which led me here. Circular.

    The series is “Twenty Twelve” a la 2012 Summer Olympics… It’s on PBS on Thursday afternoon… And yes, it’s very funny.

    I don’t think it’s a Brompton… Looks too clunky.

    The CBC tolerated Jian Ghomeshi’s abusive behaviour but not a bagless Brompton. The CBC is a farce.
