Chas just landed in London fresh today, what he did next was to build up his bike and hit the streets of London. We did some catching up with him and seeing what his been up to, talking about race mainly bike stuff. It’s a quick visit so give him a high five or a holla if you see him n the streets!
It’s good to see you, Chas!
I saw this gloves early last year coming out in the States side, wanted to get my hands on it but wasn’t successful. But when I looked again it was finally came out for us over here so I ordered it and now let me test these gloves out. It’s easy for me to copy and paste what it says on the web but i’m not gonna do that, let me give a few words on theses Ambient city gloves.
The gloves is full real leather (soft), the fitting is pretty much true to size and real comfy. Thermal fleece lining works well so far, riding out here on a 3 degree temperature but what works so well is I can use my iPhone without taking my gloves off, I can take photos, calls, text and liking pictures on Instagram. Its a wind and water resistant gloves the only thing is while having it on, the wrist closure is short and can lead draught on the forearm and a cold wrist. It has a nice soft microfibre panel on the thumb area good for wiping your sweats or runny nose.
The gloves on the handle bar is comfortable and doesn’t feel bunched up, I use these gloves off the bike and it looks good. I didn’t feel silly wearing it as its a slim fitted and not bulky. On top that it doesn’t look like a typical bike gloves. All in all I love the the gloves and I would say if you got the money buy it, don’t forget it’s real leather and you can use it on and off your bike!
Get it HERE!!!
So it’s that time when I say good bye to this year adventure. I haven’t been doing long big ride this year, just been riding to and from work. I had more down than up this year, one of them is getting hit by a car and damaging my 14R, still waiting for the insurance to get back to me. From that I’ve not been focusing on my bike and kinda laying low.
My first bike ride of this year (2014).
This year I’ve met some good people like Daisaku from Japan. For his last day in London, took him out for pizza at mulberry street. They’ve got some big pizza’s. We had a good laugh and good ride that day, showing him London for the last time.
Got a balance bike for my daughter and took her around battersea park, will it lead her on riding fixed bikes???
This year I’ve seen a lot of people not caring how they walk across the road or my best one is how they made the bike box for us people on bike but yet vehicles still use up the space. Yet if we don’t have helmet or lights even no breaks we get a telling off? The law is funny sometimes.
Who was the lucky ones that got the Scorpio tee designed by Moses? We didn’t make many so if you got on count yourself lucky.
London had an awesome summer, a real summer. It was good to see so many people on their bikes.
I saw more in Paris on Tour de France than when they came here?
I was kinda jealous of Rob when he rode to Paris this year…But for real he done well!
I’ve done this year Bikeathon to raise money for leukaemia blood cancer and made £250.
I’ve set up a bike ride for Johnny cupcakes guys and did a burger ride, going to dip and flip burger place. Turns out the road that day was busy and it felt like it was Monday morning!
A week later we’ve done a donuts ride going to Hounslow for Dunkin donuts and then went up north to Enfield for some Krispy Kreme, while we were there we did some mini games with dickies and FGL prizes.
While getting hit by car I went to the velodrome at Olympic park it was an awesome experience.
Uniqlo came to us to do some campaign for heat tech and so we did an event in Look mum no hands, with rollapaluza. Giving away lots of prizes that night and free heat tech clothes.
So this sums up my year! Let’s hope next year will be a good one and it will be our 10 years anniversary so keep ya eyes open of what will be happening!
Happy new year on behalf of Fixed gear London.
