One Millionth Brompton Tour
Bromptons have been on millions of epic journeys across the world. Now, we're ready to take the millionth Brompton on the most epic journey of all: from coast to coast, Atlantic to Pacific... follow along as we ride through some of our favourite global cities.
We'll ride through each city, meet our community and host local events. Exploring the culture and love for cycling everywhere we go! We kicked off our One Millionth Brompton Tour on 2 March 2023. Check out where we've been so far, and where we're going next.

With a rapturous send off from our factory in Greenford, West London, the bike made the journey towards its next location.
A crew of our community took the One Millionth bike on a ride through Brompton’s history in London, stopping at two special spots along the way, and making use of the infamous Brompton fold to board a boat from Battersea Power Station.
We celebrated hitting the big 1,000,000 with friends of Brompton at our Junction store in Covent Garden. Later in the evening we held an insightful and passionate panel to discuss how we can re-imagine cities and change the future of transport.

Next stop... Milan! The Millionth bike made its way through Italy, completing the second leg of the One Million tour!
Arriving first in Milan for Emoving Days – an event that showcased the future of electric and urban mobility – the Millionth bike sat proudly, demonstrating Brompton’s heritage and future contributions to active travel in our cities:
The bike then spent some time at our Junction store in Milan, where our all could come and see it in all of its glory - before finally traveling down to Rome to visit our friends at Zio Bici - who are displaying the bike and hosting a group ride in celebration of our one-million-strong community!

The One Millionth landed in Valencia, Spain on the 21st April and we celebrated with our wonderful Valencia Junction team at Ciclosferia! The event showcased the best of urban cycling and we were given the opportunity to present the One Millionth in all of its glory to the Spanish public.
We also enjoyed a ride-out with our Valencia community. Meeting on Saturday morning for Bocadillos and coffee, we set off cycling along the wonderful bike lanes in the city - taking in the parks, sights and sounds, before finally arriving at Ciclosferia en-mass.
We partnered with Valencian artist Mr Simon, who reimagined a Brompton C Line. This one-of-a-kind bike was raffled at Ciclosferia to one lucky winner. With bold colours and clean lines, this bike was designed to celebrate the individuality of each Brompton owner and is dedicated to the One Million strong community we have across the world!

Moin Moin Hamburg! Germany's northernmost city and port metropolis was the next stop for our millionth bike. Between ships, tankers, fish rolls and crowing seagulls, our millionth bike was already surrounded by air carried into the city by the many international container ships, tourists and the wind of the coast.
We celebrated together with our community at Junction Hamburg and the team on site - and of course a community ride with over 50 participants!
10 - 11 May 2023
What better occasion could there have been than to combine the birthday of our CEO Will Butler-Adams with the arrival of the millionth Brompton in Germany's capital? Alexanderplatz, Brandenburg Gate, Tempodrom, Spree and Berlin Wall - the bike completed a tour through the entire city and was personally ridden through the city by our community. Will Butler-Adams presented to the Berliners in the best weather. In the evening, we toasted to our two main characters at Salon Babette in East Berlin!

Last stop in Germany for the time being: Munich! The starting point for the Munich Community Ride was our Junction Store. There the bike could be admired, ridden and photographed all day. The community ride then took us along the river Isar, the Eisbach surf wave, through the English Garden and along Königsplatz. A wonderful conclusion to our first three tour stops in Germany where of course the obligatory pretzel and wheat beer were not to be missed.
