Ronald Amery from Brompton Italia shared his thoughts on this year's BUC Milan:

Ciao from Milano! 
 
The Brompton Urban Challenge was finally back in the city that invented it back in 2012.
 
The Brompton Junction Milan welcomed the participants on a hot Saturday with a rich breakfast. The teams were determined at random so participants had the opportunity to meet new people. We had participants from all over Italy but also Marion from Germany and the Brompton distributer from Switzerland; Simon (who is preparing for his Urban Challenge in Bern in August). 
 
The teams had three hours to take pictures around the city based on five different themes: the Expo Milano (a large exhibition about sustainable and ecological food development), Stylishness, In Motion, Take a Brake and Intermodal Transport.  

They also had to find different places in the city where they had to accomplish challenges such as beer tasting, combining their bikes with local landmarks, find the photographer, repair an inner tube…  
 
The arrival at Le Corti all’Alzaia, a converted former paper factory just outside the city centre, was welcomed with fresh water and a tasty lunch. Other funny challenges followed; the assembling of a Brompton jigsaw puzzle, the spectacular Brompton Wall and … the slow race!  
 
The winners of the Photo Challenge received a Game Bag and prizes were also given out for the other challenges. Before leaving everyone was given a Brompton Urban Challenge Milano mug!
