Brompton World Championship Final
The 11th Brompton World Championship Final will take place as part of the Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling on Saturday 30th July at 1915. This is the second time the race has been held in the capital, where the Brompton bike was invented and it still made today.
Last year’s event saw participants from over 20 nations taking part with a star-studded field including British cycling stars David Millar and Michael Hutchinson. Sportswear most definitely is not permitted with a strictly no Lycra rule. Competitors start the race with a Le Mans-style mad dash, unfolding their bikes before taking on the 16km circuit. Mark Emsley was last year’s Male winner storming to the finish in 00:26:45 and Isabel Hastie took the Women’s crown in 00:28:49.
Entries to the race are now closed, but don't worry you can still share in the excitement of the day.
You can purchase a ticket to enter the Brompton Hospitality Area on The Mall. From here you’ll be able to watch the race track-side and witness the unique Le Mans start as the riders rush to unfold their bikes to race off round the track and see close up the sprint finish down the Mall towards the finish line.

Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle, returns on Saturday 30 July 2016. This year the event, which is part of a festival of cycling led by the Mayor of London’s office, will showcase new areas of the capital. The route will again take in the Strand and Lincoln’s Inn Fields and returns to the Victoria Embankment, taking in a section of the newly opened East-West Cycle Superhighway (CS3).
The eight-mile circuit passes iconic London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England and again goes south of the river with a loop over Waterloo Bridge, offering stunning views of London. There are a further two miles of Explore Routes through the City of London, allowing riders to meander through the historic streets of the capital.
There will be a Brompton trial area at the Aldwych site where you can ride a range of Brompton models. Brompton owners* can also claim a Brompton badge.
