This Sucks

Saturday gone I got hit at Millbank, next to Victoria tower gardens, in the morning while I was going to working. The sliver Mercedes was turning into a side street, he stopped thinking he saw me going by but then he changed his mind for some reason and went ahead into the street. Then bang I got hit and went flying over the front of his car and landed hard on the pavement and second after my bike over my head.
I’ve been off my bike for a few days and just walking fine, but my lower right leg isn’t 100% better, feeling discomfort and when I walk sometimes it gives me a sharpe pain. Wrist still hurst when I put pressure, and I hate the bus! Oh, also the guy did say it was his fault and hope he pays for all my damage on the bike and my bus fares, 14R isn’t looking to good at the moment.

Do’nut Ride Review

with one comment

This sunday Fixed Gear London hosted Le Tour Do’nut. A cruise to Dunkin Donuts in Hounslow followed by a quick blast to Krispy Kreme in Enfield.

We met at 11am outside Niketown & made our way over to Hounslow via Shepherds bush then along the A315 beside the River Thames. It was a great day for a ride, 21 degrees with a cool breeze. Everybody arrived on an empty stomach, so our mouths were watering all the way down to Hounslow, this made the road slippery & Duke took a little spill on his pink Dosnoveta near Notting Hill arts club. Luckily some super cool police officers came along & even offered some water & first aid.

The ride to Dunkin Donuts was pretty much mishap free otherwise, a traffic free Sunday morning which felt a lot like the ride to Paris last year, good memories. We made it to Dunkin Donuts around 1pm & chowed down on some sweet treats. Apple crumble, strawberries & cream, glazed, raspberry jam – everything sounded good after 2 hours riding. We ate, digested, got brainfreeze & sugar rush from the shakes then made our way back to Central London so we could head over to Enfield for some more sugar soaked treats.

The ride back to Central London was a little hairy too, a slow front puncture for Moses 20mins after we left Hounslow, but we got moving quickly after it got patched up. Next it was Mikeys turn, a catastrophic crash in Hammersmith (which sounded worse than it actually was). Some street signs appeared out of nowhere & took Mikey flat out. He was completely ok & that was the last of the days mishaps. Thanks to the guy across the road whose first suggestion was that we upload crash up on youtube.

After a wait in Camden for a couple more riders we headed to Enfield via Finsbury Park, Wood Green, Palmers Green then Winchmore Hill. A few climbs later & after manoeuvring our way through a protest in Wood Green we were there. We upped the pace on the ride there so our stomachs were growling when we arrived.

We were tempted to join in with musical chairs at the kids party going on at Krispy Kremes but we had our own games in the car park outside. When realised that Donuts wouldn’t be enough junk food we combined the sweet stuff with KFC & McDonalds to appease the hunger, life is good.

After some more digestion it was time for the games. Longest skid, trackstand, drift through the gap & kick the can, Mike even got some whip skids in on his motorbike, sketchy. Indra won the longest skid + drift, Kamal won the track stand & also got some man points for the skid out of the carpark, over the kerb, through the bush & straight into a wall ride on the Krsipy Kreme HQ.

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.

We needed to take advantage of this weather today, so we got our bikes and went north to have a nice picnic. Never went to north of Lee valley national park, so we all headed in that direction. By stopping near the place to top up on our food, we kinda got carried away with food. We had way too much. We tired to eat as much as we can to make our bags lighter.
Some of the guys went to sleep right after eating, was it the heat or was it too much food?
After all that eating and laying down on the grass, we went back down south of Lee valley park towards the velo park, by taking the canal route, which was a bit of a tight squeeze for all of us, some parts wasn’t even that fun! At some point I felt I was going to fall into the water.
Along the way there we bump into mark and James from kinoko on their off road bikes.
Getting into the velo , we had to pay a visit at the road track and have a go. Think everyone had a good time riding and eating that day. Please keep your eyes open for some more rides!
