A Family Ride and a Brompton Encounter

The parental units are cyclists, too, so when they came for a visit we all went out together.

rr7-bkMountain bikes are a whole different breed!  All four bikes did just fine on the Struble Trail, in Chester County, before it closed for most of the summer.

rr7-mtPaul’s father’s bike is a mid-90s Cannondale, from the same era as another one we know well — the steed ridden by awesome ride leader and frequent commenter Saul.

Much to our surprise, we met a Brompton — and rider — at the far end of the trail.  We’d never before seen a Brompton in Chester County!  This one is a beautiful M6R with a raw lacquer finish.   We had a nice chat with the cyclist, and then headed home; this was just a quick ride before a day full of other events.

“…from the same era as another one we know well — the steed ridden by awesome ride leader and frequent commenter Saul” As Kramer, from Seinfeld, said, “You got that right!”

Brommie,
I agree; Bromptons are great on pea gravel and small stones, in addition to paved paths and sometimes on grass too.
Raw Lacquer – my kinda thing, eh?

Peace :)
