Take part in this solidary action through the bicycle in Barcelona

November 15th, 2016

Do you have any plans for this weekend? If you have a Brompton folding bicycle and 15 euros saved, take a look at this initiative to collect money for the Movember Foundation at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit. 

Some months ago, we talked about the curious Brompton World Championship, which will again be celebrated on the 22nd of April this coming year within the BiCircuit Festival frame. In the same line, this Saturday, the 19th of November, the Solidary Vermouth with Brompton will be celebrated.

At 12.30 p.m. participants, with their Brompton being ready, will meet at the Circuit and at 13 p.m. the lap around the circuit will start. After enjoying the pedaling over the asphalt track, all the participants will be able to recharge batteries with a luxury vermouth at the Privilege Corner building.

So, now you know that, if you don’t have any plans for this weekend yet and you are close to Barcelona, don’t doubt about signing up for this solidary action and training for the next Brompton World Championship.

Brompton World Championship in Barcelona, for everyone who likes to pedal well-dressed

BiCircuit Festival Barcelona has organized this foldable bicycle world competition, where the only conditions to participate are to be older than 16 and to wear a suit and a tie.

This 30th of April at 10.30 a.m. the Montmeló circuit is going to be invaded, not by the quickest cars of the world, but by the best dressed cyclists. After various editions, the participants of the Brompton World Championship will come back to ride these handmade foldable bicycles, which are fabricated in London.

Why you should participate? The award will be a trip for pedaling in the final of London, where the participants are going to ride 8 laps around the Buckingham Palace this 30th of July.

If you are not yet registered, you have time until the day before the competition (29th of April). In order to train, you only need to ride your bicycle to your work during some days, because the three laps to the circuit are only 14.1km.

This is a good activity for this Saturday (although you will have to get up early, because the distribution of the numbers will start at 8 a.m.) and a good way to encourage yourself to keep pedaling through the urban zones.
