Enjoying my time with Brompton

Earlier this year I took part in a photo shoot for Brompton, as part of their new marketing campaign. It was a pretty fun day out, going around different parts of central London and being photographed with other models. I wasn't exactly sure when or even where the photos would be published, and as I got busy doing other things I didn't pay that much attention. The job was done and dusted, and I probably had my head immersed in another writing project. 

Is a nice surprise to see yourself featured on Instagram

So it was quite a surprise yesterday to see myself tagged in a friend's post on Instagram, and discover that I was featured in one of Brompton's Instagram stories. As well as a few photos of me on the bike, they published the mini interview about cycling that I did for their blog.

Even though I write for different publications and have done so for a number of years, it still warms my cockles to see something I wrote being published to a mass audience - especially when it's unexpected.

Brompton sent me that very bike after shoot, so I am now the proud owner of these outstanding folding bikes. I really like the racing green colour. That fits very much my style, and I am thankful that the bike is 6-speed given that I have a hill to go up practically as soon as I leave my home! I look forward to having many more pleasant moments riding this bike.
