Who knew? Lou Reed rides a Brompton

Lynette Chiang, author, traveler and former customer evangelist for Bike Friday, just posted an entertaining article about a visit to New York’s Explorers Club to listen to a discussion that included performance artist Laurie Anderson. That’s where she found out that Anderson’s husband, musician Lou Reed, was also at the event.

Turns out the former frontman for The Velvet Underground owns a Brompton bicycle.

P.S. If you like Lynette’s story, you’ll love her book about riding a folding bicycle across Cuba, The Handsomest Man in Cuba: an escapade.
