From the 18th November to 30th June the London Design Museum will be running an exhibition called the Cycle Revolution. It celebrates the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain from every day commuting to Olympic level competition and looks at where design and innovation may take the riders of the future. It is the Design Museums last exhibition in their current building on the South Bank before they move to Kensington.
The exhibition looks at cycling subcultures through four ‘tribes’ – the High Performers who reach Olympic speeds, the Thrill Seekers who take on all terrains, the Urban Riders who pedal our cities mile by mile, and the Cargo Bikers who work on two wheels. British bespoke bicycle frame building is showcased in the exhibition in a recreation of a bicycle making workshop featuring artisans from across the UK.
We are working in tandem with the museum and will have an exciting display showcasing the new and old of Brompton. The exhibition will feature the earliest Brompton, the 3rd prototype bike from 1976 along with some of the first drawings by the inventor Andrew Ritchie.
Brompton Bike Hire have their latest docking station outside the museum for all to use.
The Design Museum are offering all Brompton owners and fans 15% of entry for the exhibition when tickets are purchased online. Use the code BRC3 when ordering tickets through this link.
