Luke, London: A day in the life of a Brompton Electric owner


I’m Luke, and the Brompton Electric
changed my life. I’ve gone from having to get the train
and tube into work every day, to cycling nearly 40 miles a day. I used to ride road bikes,
which were great fun, but I remember they could be hard work
in winter, especially in headwinds. You get sweaty, you don’t have anywhere
to shower or somewhere to park the bike. The Brompton Electric
fixes all these problems. You can arrive without a sweat. Starting and stopping at traffic lights is
probably the hardest part of commuting, whereas now it’s not an issue because you can
set off easily and get up to a nice speed. The beauty of the Electric
is you tend to go out on it more because you’re not thinking, “I’m gonna get
sweaty, it’s gonna be hard, am I fit enough?” You basically just jump on it
and off you go. It feels like you have a tailwind all the time. It’s got everything you’d want from an
E-bike, but in the size of a Brompton.
