The unique Brompton folding bike was designed and built in London in 1975 by Andrew Ritchie in his flat in South Kensington opposite the Brompton Oratory. Still made in London today, Brompton is making over 45,000 bikes per year and is the UK’s largest bike manufacturer.
Launched in April 2011, Brompton Bike Hire was created to address the clear need for a cycle hire scheme that is accessible to all, economical to use and not confined by boundaries or borders so you can hire and return at any dock nationwide.
