STEP TWO - THE CHALLENGES

Once you have the Prudential Ride London App downloaded, you are ready to go. These photo challenges must be completed during your ride, make sure you keep the photographs safe, you’ll need to upload them afterwards. 

The BWC isn't the BWC without some amazing prizes! We will be giving awards to the fastest fold and best dressed female and best dressed male. As this year we aren't racing, we will be randomly selecting 2 people (one female & one male) at the awards ceremony to each win an Brompton Bike - but you've got to complete all the photo challenges to be eligible to win!



Best Dressed: This is a strictly no-Lycra event, we want to see you in your finest! Shirt, bow tie, jacket the lot and if you can co-ordinate with your Brompton, even better.  


Highest Point: Ride your Brompton to the highest point you can and take a picture. It’s not about the elevation, it’s all for that amazing picture.

Beautiful Scenery: We love seeing Bromptons in amazing unusual places. Ride to a beautiful location and photograph your Brompton with an impressive backdrop. 


Good deed: We all need a good pick me up, so do a good deed on your way – anything from dropping some flowers to a loved one to donating to charity. Do remember to take a picture of it. 


Fastest Fold: Everyone favourite, the fastest fold. This year we are going to miss seeing that frantic dash across the race track and unfolding of bikes - but video yourself doing your fastest fold and you could be crowned this year’s fastest fold champion! Please remember to stop the clock yourself and show us your time on camera.
