What is a Brompton Urban Challenge?
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. Register and find out more at www.bikereg.com/bucphl.
