“The highlight is the Brompton World Championships where the finest athletes are flown in from around the world and over 500 people race up The Mall to adoring crowds. The bikes are rapid, the start is Le Mans and there is no Lycra in sight! Cycling is for everyone; it brings freedom, fun and should reclaim its place in the city.”
