I'm heading off in a few months with my partner and 1-y/o son to travel the Eurovelo 6 from the Danube Delta to Saint-Nazaire on the French Atlantic coast.
I'm planning to take my Brompton, along with a trailer (probably the Radical Design Cyclone IV Chubby Bicycle Trailer). My partner may (or may not) have a Brompton. Our child will be in a Croozer trailer.
So, possibly two Bromptons, a gear trailer and a child trailer.
This means strapping at least some luggage to the Bromptons themselves - I've seen lots of pics and read some stuff about how people do this, but some of the stuff, like putting a backpack on the back rack looks pretty unstable.
The advantages are many: -
* can be packed as normal luggage
* can be taken into tents / hotel rooms easily
* generally more portable when not in use
Possible disadvantages include: -
* less riding comfort over long distances
* less robust bicycle
* more proprietary parts, so harder to service and repair
Just interested if anyone has had experience of Brompton touring that includes some unsealed / dirt roads and has an opinion about whether taking a Brompton is a good or bad idea.
Any input about gear strapped to Bromptons or generally any comment on the above.
Your thoughts much appreciated!
