Had a free time today, so I took advantaged and got on to my bike and rode somewhere. Weather was so awesome had so much fun going around London. Grabbed some lunch with some mates at Five guys in Covent Garden, then went up north to have a wonder around Emirates stadium and check out the new kit. Yes, I am an Arsenal supporter.
It’s all about having fun on your bike!
Got bored riding to work looking normal. So I got this out to play…
Today has to be one of my best ride in the morning. It was amazing the weather was so good, wearing my dickies shorts and my chill out tee done by Ty. Showing my body heat to everyone!
As family comes first I don’t ride often, but when I do I make sure to go out there and have fun. Explore London and see new things, as summer comes near I hope to see you guys and girls out there. Feel free to say hi to me when you see me riding. I don’t bite, only if you have food with you!
Had to go the 14 Bike co office, so I just put on the the Gopro and heres what we got.
Riding around London with Boyce
It was cold & wet but the show went on. Thanks to those who turned up for the Easter hunt especially the volunteers, it was great fun in the end. Big thanks to the sponsors too. Pestle and Mortar, Chrome industries, 14 Bike co & Continental Tires.
14 signed up, half chickened out due to the grim weather but it was still a great little challenge! It’s always a bother riding in the rain but once you’ve warmed up & you’re with a good bunch of riders the mood quickly lightens up. The first checkpoint/meeting place was the inner circle in Regents Park. Everybody was cold.
We kept our legs moving as we had a reconnaissance of the checkpoints while dropping off our helpers at the checkpoints.
A massive thank you to the helpers from the checkpoints:
1. Ryan and Jake.
2. Michael and Indra.
3. Mike and Sam.
4. Rob and Glenn.
Finish Check point. Mikey and Lettie.
Once everyone assembled, and instructions were read out, Mikey screamed starters orders & the fun began.
We cycled through wind and rain, but luckily it was Easter Sunday so traffic was light. At each checkpoint our riders collected an Easter egg, containing a map, showing where the next checkpoint was. First to collect 4 eggs won.
The last checkpoint was Battersea park where Mikey & Lettie waited for the winner under Buddha with the prizes & drinks.
Here were the winners:
3rd place: Dimi
2nd place: James
1st place: Matt
We had a scramble for the drinks in the end so everybody who came out got something:
Then it was over to Bodeans for some good food. After a little ride from Battersea.

Red hook crit this year was one of the wettest and coldest race ever, racing in an open place where wind and heavy rain got every riders and tested their bodies and also skills to over come this bad weather. No one enjoyed it but hands down they still did it! It says this Sunday will be heavy rain but it will be some sunshine trying to break out, so please let’s hope it won’t be so bad this Sunday and still join us for this awesome event, the map is bigger than the first event we did. Also there will be free drink after.
