I’ve been working in Haggle Vinyl in Angel for some months now after being an intermittent customer over the last 4 years or so. It’s hands-down my favourite store, a real old london gem of an independent record shop. Run by a good friend Lynn Alexander, after 15 years of trading Haggle Vinyl is set to close its doors.
I took photos for those who haven’t had the pleasure of visiting in person – make it down before it shuts for good in December! Anyone that comes on a saturday with an FGL sticker on their bike gets special discounts!
Lynn wishes to thank all those who have helped the shop (not those who have helped themselves in the shop) over the last 15 years. Particular thanks to the customers who travel from across the globe and visit the store whose knowledge makes each day fascinating
Haggle Vinyl, 114 – 116 Essex Rd, Angel, London

I’ve done the leukaemia bikeathon, solo ride. Took me 4hrs 30mins doing 52 miles with 3 breaks. Took one turning wrong, had burrito on my mind half the time, spoke to some random people on bikes. But all in all I had a blast! Oh plus feels good doing 62 miles and eating free banana’s. But it’s not too late to donate so please if you can support my ride for this charity, please and thank you.
A few days ago I’ve blogged about some picnic ride we did and heres what went on.
Last night I went to watch Bicycle the film at Barbican cinema directed by Michael B.Clifford and he’s a keen cyclist. It was a sold out screening, but I don’t want to give much away as I want you to go and watch it for yourself or buy it on DVD. But there’s a few stories in the film that portrays different routes about bikes and how important it is for them in their daily life. The film explains the history of bikes and how it has changed over the years to improve itself such as the aerodynamics and the materials of the bikes.
In the documentary we follow Dannielle Khan on her daily training on the bike and how she wins in the velodrome race. Then we meet Mike Burrows on how he designed the winning bike for Chris Boardman and also built he fastest bike of the time, in the velodrome. There’s also how bike paths was made and where it is now, like I said I won’t say any more. But please check the film when it’s back on the big screen in some
Cinemas in London, more info HERE.
You can pre order the DVD on their website to.
A great film done by Blue hippo media and thank you Nina for letting me be part of it too!
