Brompton owners from all over the East Coast and beyond will converge on the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, for the first ever U.S. Brompton Urban Challenge. The unusual event combines social-media savvy with orienteering around a series of Philly landmarks and secret destinations revealed only on Urban Challenge Day.
Originating in Milan, Italy, the Brompton Urban Challenge was brought to London last year and in 2014 will take place in five key cities around the world. Brompton riders will zip around Philadelphia, solving a series of challenges and posting them up to the Web, with the special hashtag, #bucphl, so that the event can be followed on social media anywhere in the world. A portion of the registration fees will benefit Neighborhood Bike Works, Philadelphia’s non-profit that teaches cycling and life skills to our city’s kids.
