The Journal – The Rarebit Ramble with Pannier

Pannier Bike Pack with Brompton Bike hire.

The partnership was born between Pannier and Brompton Bike Hire to challenge the perception of bike hire and show what fun can be had. No borders or city boundaries, just your imagination and our 2 wheels.

Enjoy here a sneak peek into their trip. The three-day adventure between Birmingham and Camarthen Hire Docks – escaping the city, connecting places and exploring on two wheels. Let us inspire with you into planning a great U.K escape break this summer. I think we all need a much deserved get away.

Here is a birds-eye view into the rarebit ramble.

“Red Kites soared silently high above our bask of Bromptons, and Route 81 – one of those picture-perfect single-track touring roads, that tracked the gently meandering infant River Wye. A pause and a peek through Ben’s binoculars, and you could see them seeking and collecting material for nest building, minding their own business…” Stefan Amato
