Last month a good friend of mine decided to do an out of blue photo shoot with me. You should check out his blog. He is an amazing guy too!
Sunday gone, me and Moses had a little ride to Richmond, the weather was chilled but it didn’t stop us. The road in the park was wet and I had a little slipped on the mini round about, it kinda sucks when you have to ride back trying not to put pressure on your bad wrist. We saw a lots of road bike’s trying to beat their time around the park, going up and down the hill’s to be on top of strava challenges!
That feeling when you see the ground that close to you, sucks!
Last night went for a little ride around London with some mate’s, the temperature wasn’t nice I couldn’t feel my toe’s and finger’s. Just went around Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf then back to central. Roads wasn’t than empty as I thought on a sunday, it really felt it was about to snow last night, then what happend this morning?
I just got an iphone so ive been so stoked on being able to document london spots without forgetting about them later. I think its best when you can make a route from spot to spot. These scenarios are pretty sketchy and difficult to ride which makes you so much more creative in my opinion. Which is what fixed tricks should be all about not just hitting the local skatepark blasting fly outs. Not that im hating i still dig that shit and wish i could backflip. I just think there is a more interesting skill to finding and riding ambiguous environments.
We have just added tickets to the Impetus Momenta talk on the 6th of December to our webshop.
Asmawa by Patrick Seabase will also be screened at the event on the 6th of December.
Impetus Momenta Is a presentation about the history of Fixed Gear. The ethos of riding a fixed gear bike on the street, It’s evolution, design and the surrounding culture.
The main theme of this talk will be to raise awareness about the benefits of riding a fixed gear bike. Whether it is riding in the congested streets of a city, endlessly through the vast openness in the middle of nowhere or ascending / descending mountains. To us the Fixed gear bike is the most important form of transport ever devised. Perfected in it’s inception, balanced in it’s form / function, and once you have mastered riding a fixed gear bike, you feel at one with this form of transport more than any other machine ever invented.
