I did something unique to the Brompton folding bike a few days back, I caught a bus. The bus was the 303 that runs from southern Redfern to Botany and then through the airport tunnel and onto Kyeemegah. This saves 5 km of bike trail riding around the airport. The serious cyclists go through the tunnel and average 35km an hour or more, cars do high speed and there is no verge. I ride at about 20km so getting on a bus is my only option. Finally I did a loop of the airport.
Here are photos and a map. I went around the airport and a quick diversion to Ikea where I bought something. When putting the bike on the bus, I put it in a cheap light Ikea bag to avoid it snagging on something or someone.
The 303 Bus details are here https://transportnsw.info/…/sydney-buses-network/303/31303
or Find a link to the 303 bus on the Sydney map. You will have to turn on the Trains and wharf’s tab.
There will be lots more Brompton folding Inspiration coming along. Such a good bike.
