The globally iconic, Made in London, Brompton folding bike is making its Santos Tour Down Under debut in 2017 with two great events for Australia’s Brompton community. 

On Sunday January 15, join the Brompton Urban Challenge,  a two wheeled urban scavenger hunt, exploring the city, uncovering clues and hints and discovering all that Adelaide and the Santos Tour Down Under has to offer. 

Then, on the afternoon of Tuesday January 17, join us for the Treadly Bike Hire Brompton Sprint - a short, sharp test of speed for the fastest Bromptoneers in Australia. International Brompton Race Rules apply: Jacket and tie dress code and Le-Mans style start: riders must unfold their bikes before joining the race.
