Unfolding in Rio

After seven days in Rio de Janeiro, I finally took the time to share some of my experiences with BF-members.

Today I got a ride from my place to a friends place and took my Brompton with me. September 7th is Independence day here, so the beach was packed!!!

Here is what I have to share:





And look what I found, for my surprise:



After a nice day at the beach, I did 17 miles from Leblon to Copacabana, and then went home. It was nice to see some roadies freaking out while I passed them.

More to come soon...

Quick update: a friend of mine wants my Brompton, so I am going to sell it to him without making a dime. At least I am not losing money, and will be able to buy an identical Brompton once I am back into the US. I might change one of my upgrades (probable the carbon fiber handlebar) for the Raw Lacquer finish.

Bikeless in Rio,
