    Save the Date! Brompton Racing Goes to Washington this July

    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington with his Brompton That's right, Bromptoneers! The 2014 Brompton US Championship will take place in our nation's capital on the weekend of July 11 through 13, 2014. After two great years of Brompton Racing in Minneapolis, Perennial Cycle is honored to pass the torch that is the Brompton US Championship to BicycleSPACE in Washington, D.C. We remain grateful to Mike McGettigan at Trophy Bikes in Philadelphia for the aid he lent us when we were handed the race in early 2012 and hope to be able to help in any way we can to the staff at Bicycle Space. Bicycle Space D.C.

    If you're thinking of making the trek to Washington for the race, know that you're in good hands. BicycleSPACE is run by a great group of people committed to fostering a welcoming environment for everyone from beginner cyclists to hard-core daily commuters. The shop's interior is gorgeous and many of the same great brands you'll find at Perennial Cycle are at home at BicycleSPACE—including Brompton (of course), Brooks, and Linus. When it comes to planning the details of this year's Brompton race, manager Jordan Mittelman is on familiar turf. Take a look at BicycleSPACE's event calendar and you'll quickly see that the staff is busy every week with yoga classes, in-house maintenance clinics, and group rides. Looking for further details? The date is set, but many of the specifics surrounding the event are still in the planning stages. To be the first to know once registration opens, watch for news at bromptonuschampionship.com, join the mailing list, and follow Bicycle Space on Twitter and Facebook. As you begin making your plans for race-day, get inspiration for your race kit by checking out photos from the 2013 race on Flickr. While we won't be hosting the event this year, you can be sure we'll be re-tweeting any big news from BicycleSPACE and keeping you up to speed on the Perennial Cycle Facebook page as well. And, with any luck, you may just see a member of team Perennial at the starting line! The Brompton US Championship goes to Washington, D.C. in 2014

    Brompton Movie Screening + Travel Clinic, March 6

    The History of Brompton Join us Thursday, March 6 for a three-pronged event (did someone say Brompton Treble?) at Perennial Cycle, 3342 Hennepin Ave S in Minneapolis. We'll start with happy hour at the shop beginning at 5 p.m. followed by a travel maintenance clinic from 6-7 p.m. Sample a bottle from a selection of ginger beers or dream of summer nights with a lime tonic. Get inspiration for future travels as you chat with fellow Brompton owners and fans, including some experienced travelers who've road-tripped, flown, and toured with their Brommies. To cap off the evening, we'll be screening the The History of Brompton [71 minutes] promptly at 7:15. Beginning at 6 o'clock we'll have time slots available for a maintenance clinic with the Perennial Cycle service team. Register in advance to by calling 612-827-8000 and let us know if you'd like to sit in on Flat Fixing on the Road, Wheel Removal Basics, or both. If you have a preference for a session closer to 6 p.m. or closer to 7 p.m., please let us know when you call and we'll do our best to accommodate your request. Day-of registration will be available only as space allows. Each session will take place in a small group led by an experienced staffer. We'll focus on the ins-and-outs of removing your Brompton's rear wheel (plus quickly demonstrate front-wheel removal), talk through the basics of flat-tire trouble-shooting, and introduce you to the tools required for each. As a bonus, participants may choose to receive a follow-up email with video tips from Brompton & Perennial Cycle on the basics of servicing your Brompton. As we approach showtime the popcorn will be... well, popping. The film will begin at 7:15 sharp. Please arrive in time to grab a seat and a bucket of popcorn! (Click here to view the trailer on YouTube if you do not see the video above) Produced by British Local Histories, The History of Brompton is a polished and insightful film charting the Brompton's development from its beginnings to the present day. Featuring interviews with inventor Andrew Ritchie, footage of the bikes being made in the company's West London factory, and even action from a past Brompton World Championship. Brompton calls the film, "...an honest, compelling documentary that brings new insights to even the longest-standing members of [the Brompton] staff. There is much in here that will delight and surprise [Brompton owners]." The shop will remain open through the end of the film. While you're here, enjoy March's 1st-Thursday specials including 10% off in-stock Brompton accessories, buy-one-get-one 1/2-off tubes, and save $10 on all tune-ups for any bicycle(s) dropped off for service on 3/6/14. P.S. It's hard to talk about traveling with your Brompton without touching on the question of where the Brompton US Championship is headed in 2014. Many of you have asked, but while the official announcement has yet to be made, we are excited to share with you that we'll be sending one lucky Minnesotan to this year's race. By attending the March movie screening, you'll have a chance to be among the first to enter to win a round-trip ticket to the Brompton US Championship 2014's host-city. No purchase necessary to enter. Perennial Cycle will announce the winner in spring 2014. For complete rules, see a member of the Perennial Cycle staff. P.P.S. If the weather cooperates, keep your evening open  post-show for a possible group ride to Merlin's rest with members of the Perennial Cycle staff. WHO: Brompton owners + friends WHAT: Movie Screening + Travel Clinic WHEN: Thursday, March 6 from 5 p.m. to close WHERE: Perennial Cycle, 3342 Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408 CONTACT: Call with your questions, 612-827-8000
