Brompton Urban Challenge 5/31/14

Brompton Urban Challenge

Brompton owners from all over the East Coast and beyond will converge on the City of Brotherly LovePhiladelphia, 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.

As a forward-thinking bike shop, utilizes any and all advertising media modalities to reach our target demographic: in this case , @upenngapsa and @uofpenn students walking along the 4500 Block of Pine Street. We know Ivy League cyclists need a shop that's available at the start and finish of their long days!
Fun Facts: 1) These nasty little signs (16th below Locust St., W. side) are illegal code violations. 2) If they cut your lock, etc., it's a crime. 3) Probably simple to use a nutdriver to remove them and reinstall them face in. 3B) The metal they're made of feels flimsy and easy to bend. 4) PHL Streets/311 will be sending an inspector out shortly.
BEHOLD! This rig helped us get this classic Billy Preston (who brought his punchy keyboard style to the Beatles' hit "Get Back", among others) vinyl back to where it once belonged: 4 zip ties, 1 foam spacer--and done.
