Date night takes us to Long Island City. That beautiful spot. The seemingly ancient ferry terminals mingling with shiny new skyscrapers. The iconic glow from the Pepsi Cola sign. The waterfront, the boardwalk, it’s all perfect. A perfect place to ride, stroll, sit, cuddle, relax. Breathing together with the whole Big Apple laid out down the river.
Todd got his Brompton first. It’s a 3 speed with “M” handlebars. Red frame paired with red ORP smart horn. Black extremities matched to black Lightskin seat post. Todd has style and – not surprisingly – so does Bernadette. She got a Brompton soon after. The exciting idea of riding together was a palpable presence in the room as we discussed it’s color – Claret. A color of wine, sophistication, warmth, and class.
These two Brommie lovers really know how to enjoy life. Exploring the city on their Bromptons. Sampling the Queens restaurant scene. Doing what they want, when they want. Free on two wheels. A dynamic pair.
