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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
A journey through the Netherlands! Farm to table feasting, community ride outs & more… Continuing its extraordinary journey around the globe, the Brompton One Millionth bike rolled into Brompton Junction in Amsterdam, captivating passers-by from its window display and drawing visitors from across the city and beyond!
Bienvenue en France! The One Millionth Brompton was showcased to the French public for the first time at the "Velo in Paris" consumer show the 27-29th May. The Brompton community came together for a memorable group ride around the beautiful city of Paris.
The One Millionth Brompton has landed in Asia at its first stop - Beijing. Brompton joined forces with WallpaperSTORE* to create an immersive exhibition for the bike and the brand, incorporating the symbolic number "1,000,000" to establish a playful connection between Brompton and Beijing.
Highlighting eight different sections with the brand history and complete product line, we celebrated the Asian debut of Archive Edition, displaying the three Archive colours. A corner of Brompton's London Factory was also recreated in the exhibition!
There was a myriad of inspirations for a cycling lifestyle. As owners rode their Brompton bikes to and from the exhibition, they became a vibrant part of the urban landscape. Visualising their perceptions and memories of people, life and biking through a variety of colours.
The community were invited to share their own ‘1 out of 1,000,000’ colour to Brompton. The Brompton community from Beijing united in celebration of this special and marvellous "riding" moment!
Led by our enthusiastic Hong Kong Brompton community, the One Millionth Brompton whizzed through various iconic landmarks and made pitstops at our dealers in Hong Kong and Macau over three days. The bike’s first pit stop was MT Biker and Brompton Station.
The One Millionth Brompton then made its way to The Clock Tower, the only remnant of the original site of the former Kowloon station. We caught captivating views of the endless skyline at Star Ferry Pier, Tsim Sha Tsui, and stopped over at our retailers: MCBC, Bull Bike, and Flying Ball HK.
Crossing over by ferry, the One Millionth Brompton then travelled to further landmarks and Victosports, our retailer in Macau.
We were greatly heartened to see the community of passionate Brompton owners and to leave our distinct Brompton footprint on Hong Kong’s vibrant mosaic of cultural tapestry.
Singapore saw the largest community ride in the One Millionth Brompton Bike world tour – with a spectacular turn-out of more than 400 Brompton owners, to celebrate the arrival of the One Millionth Brompton Bike!
Displaying the One Millionth Brompton, along with MK1 and four Archive Edition bikes in Funan Mall’s Atrium Space for five days, we ended our last day with the ultimate highlight – the community ride-out.
We took a spin along Singapore’s bay area, from Marina Bay Sands to our Brompton Junction at Funan. It was a sight to behold with each Brompton owner riding their unique Brompton – and we loved watching our strong and passionate community come together, decked out in different colours.
Our Archive Edition bikes showcased in Funan came in historical colours Baby Pink, Arctic Blue and Apple Green. But the cherry on top for all Brompton enthusiasts was certainly the launch of the APAC-exclusive series: the two-tone Apple Green with Arctic Blue bike.
The Brompton team also seized the opportunity to thank the Brompton community’s unwavering support, before revisiting and reaffirming our company's purpose to create urban freedom for happier lives. We marked this historic event, by pasting the exclusive Singapore city sticker onto the One Millionth Brompton.
Together with local celebrities and industry heavyweights, our Brompton One Millionth Singapore event banded the #AllTogetherDifferent Brompton community.
