Brompton Microadventure through the Shetland Isles

Lovely video here of two guys riding and canoeing through the Scottish Shetland islands by Brompton.

What a well-done video. Love their spirit of adventure.

And, could Brompton conjure up a better testimonial for their bike?

I love watching these bike tour videos. I hope to tour Shetland in the future but there's so much yet to see on the mainland. Looking forward to spring when I plan on touring Skye and Lewis by bike this time. Also hope to make it over to Aberdeen.
