Switzerland’s first Brompton Urban Challenge was held in Bern on the 4th of July 2015, probably the hottest day of the year. Luckily the capital is blessed with a cool river and fountains all over the city. The 30+ riders who took part were set 7 challenges, the water challenge being the pick of the lot!
The teams set off from the Westside shopping mall and spa resort at the outskirts of Bern. The challenges kicked off with a blindfolded
fastest fold competition, which provided plenty of amusement to onlookers. The challenges continued at the Brompton PopUp shop in the shopping centre, where participants had to guess the number of possible Brompton configurations and to figure out how many folded Bromptons fitted in a single car-parking lot.
The day ended with a Brompton-flash-mob and Swiss-flag-spinning final around the fountain in front of the Federal Palace. The Brompton dealer Velokurierladen hosted the awards ceremony with the Na Vostok team been crowned winners of this years challenge!
