Brommie Yummie, Brompton Fold Up Ride

Brommie Yummie, No it’s not a new food truck making some sort of asian fusion taco. It does have to do with food though…Steve Haung is at it again, providing rides for Brompton foldup fans and great food.

You do have to have a Brompton FoldUp…but you can rent one from the experts at nycewheels.com on the UES.

He has another food tour coming up this Sunday (5/18/14)

Here is more from Steve:

If you are in NYC this Sunday 05/18 from 12pm to 5pm, please consider
joining me for a brommie folding bike food adventure! Since May is
National Burger Month as well as Asian Pacific Islander Month, we will
attempt to find burgers and other yummies with East or West
inspirations as we eat, bike, fold… And yes, I will be back riding a
brommie folding bike because it is the proper thing to do for a
brommie yummy after all? If you have an un-brommie, then let’s ride
together at next fold foodie taking place on Sunday 06/08 :-)

Brommie Yummie is a “brompton only” leisurely paced folding bike food
ride (around 13-19 miles) with stops in between for food, fun and
interesting conversations. A guide fee of $10/$20 whichever amount you
would like to contribute will be collected at the ride to support the
designing & organizing of brommie yummy.

Most food spots have some sort of vegetarian/vegan options available.
Please let me know if you have any special dietary preferences or
needs so I can be mindful in planning. So come for the food, come for
the ride, but don’t let your dietary preference/restriction prevent
you from joining the fun!

Please reply to this email (creative.facilitatorATgmail.com) with your brommie colour to reserve your
spot for this Sunday 05/18 as soon as possible and I will reply with
ride details as the confirmation by Saturday once I get your
reservation email. Thank you!
