Rarebit Ramble (Film)
Our friends at Pannier in the UK recently rented a bunch of Brompton folding bikes and took them out for a 150-kilometer bikepacking trip across Wales, shooting a short film as they went. Watch “Rarebit Ramble” here, along with some still images and a link to dive into the full trip journal…
a traditional ‘Welsh’ dish, involving toasted cheese. Originally called ‘Cawi Pobs’ (toasted cheese, in Welsh), its origins are thought to date back to the 16th Century.
Bikepacking on Bromptons? Oh yes. Brompton Bike Hire challenged us to make the most of their network of hire docks (lockers) dotted across England and Wales. We hired bikes from the centre of Birmingham, strapped on a mix of bikepacking bags and 25L front bags, and rode/pushed/train-ed our way through the heart of Mid-Wales on a cross-country adventure to Carmarthen (where we dropped the bikes off) over three days. Connecting cities, people, and places by bike. Our group ended up riding over 150 kilometres on the folding bikes, which, bar any sustained 10%+ climbs, or chunky gravel was more than rideable; even comfortable, given the upright ‘touring’ riding position.
Expect rarebit cookouts, quad-bike rides, train shortcuts, kazoos, post-office paparazzi, wild swims, and freewheel fun!
