A Bike For Every Occasion

Distraction. Procrastination. Exercise. Transport. Freedom!

Right now, with society in lock-down thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, more people than ever are dusting off bikes and getting out for a ride. Staying local, keeping your distance from others, riding off your cabin-fever and breathing some fresh air.  Whether you’re sticking to suburban streets, venturing onto the share-paths, or enjoying more direct routes and taking advantage of reduced vehicular traffic, a Brompton bike makes for a fun and convenient ride.

Since 1975 Brompton bikes have been designed and made for life in cities; for commuting, for being folded up in a matter of seconds to jump aboard a train/tram/bus or thrown into the back of a car. If they can work for people living in tiny London apartments, you'll be amazed where you can stash one in your average Aussie home. 

But just as the folded Brompton belies the size of the unfolded bike, the “Made For Cities” tag belies how versatile your Brompton actually is.

Once holidays and gatherings are permissible again, our Bromptons will not be left to collect dust. They are the perfect bike to take with you - anywhere!

The old gem "It's not the size that counts, it's how you use it!" does spring to mind on occasion. But life is far more than a race to the finish - so enjoy the ride and measure the journey in smiles.
