Del Rey singing on a Brompton

I had mentioned in an earlier post that ukulele and guitar player Del Rey had joined me and some other Tucson folks on a group ride.  Del is a bicycle enthusiast (and a Brompton owner!!) and had written a song about her passion for cycling.  She was kind enough to share it with us... while sitting on a Brompton of course!

Brompton Urban Challenge: London 2014

Here's a cool video of the Brompton Urban Challenge in London this year (featuring the legendary Bumble B).  Is this what I have to look forward to in DC in July?  I think there's also going to be one in Philly to if I remember right.

Lazy Sunday

Today the Tucson Brompton Meetup Group (in association with Metrognome Music and Cycle to Go) went out for an easy ride to Sky Bar for some coffee and calzones.  We even had a guest from out of town... ukulele and guitarist virtuoso (virtuosa?) Del Rey (not to be confused with Lana Del Rey).  We were also joined by a couple of prospective Brompton owners, who after the ride became pending Brompton owners (orders were placed for some arctic blue H6Rs!)  The weather was hot (hey! It's almost June in Tucson!), but the ride was enjoyable as usual.
