how did you come across Brompton Bikes?
My Dad’s always been into folding bikes, he had a Bickerton which he used to carry around in a big blue carrier bag, so I’ve always known what a folder was.
It wasn’t until I started commuting to London from Essex that I saw the Brompton bikes and got to know the brand.
Then I got a job photographing on that TV show W1A, where the Brompton was a bit of a gag in some of the scenes with Hugh Bonneville struggling to fold the bike. After the show, they offered that bike to the staff to buy, and I didn’t go for it, and always regretted it!
