Bagless Bromptons

less than 1 minute read

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.
