Ramen Burger Ride

leave a comment »

Easter Sunday, the weather was awesome compared to last years event. Told Ian Patterson I wanted to go to this place in Cuttys ark that makes ramen burger. I showed Ian a route that I wanted to take but he had another route in mind, he said it will be along side the river and less (RAD)road.

So we all met up outside Nike town as always, at 11am. When everyone was there we took off heading towards south bank, crossing the bridge to get there. This was Easter sunday and it was packed with people with families and there you 15 people on bikes, but no one took notice at us and went on with their business enjoying the sun. We hit up the side streets and even there was packed some part wasn’t of the ride wasn’t even smooth, a lot of cobblestone route but the building around it was beautiful. We was weaving around people and again they didn’t give a damn what was happening, going pass tower bridge on the side street smelling the food at borough market.

Along side the people, there was tricky obstacles that we came up to. Some of us got off the bike, some of us tried and some of us failed. But all in all we had a good laugh at it, Marek was there to captured the action before we even got to the place. Ian and Marek had everything planed on the route, it almost felt like we were on a roller coaster getting our photo taken on the intense parts.

At this point I needed some food and you could just see Cuttys ark, I knew it wasn’t long till I had that ramen burger in my hands.

Pimp my ramen, is run by pinoy guys at Greenwhich market they are there on the weekends. Burgers cost £5 and you can choose from a normal burger, Filipino pulled pork, chicken teriyaki and Veg burger. Just think of a normal bun burger but take it away and put a ramen noodles as the bun, it also comes with fried egg, cheese and secret sauce with lettuce.

After we got our food we took somewhere we can chill out and enjoy our food, not all of us got the burgers because there was a lot of other stalls that had awesome food. If you haven’t been you should go and check it out, I haven’t been there for a long while and a lot has changed since I was there.

On the way back we stopped over at a BMX/Skate shop called Curve, the shop just opened so if your’e around in Deptford pass by. IMG_2757

Thanks you to the people that came to the ride and thanks Marek for the photos. Ian for the RAD route!

Spring Time Yet?

leave a comment »

A few days ago it really felt like spring was here, but now I kinda wish i didn’t say anything as its been rubbish weather and a bit cold. The good thing is, its staying light as the time gets later. On my early morning rides you can hear lots of birds singing and seeing lots of flowers blooming. It’s a good feeling but this rain and some chilly days sucks! bring on the shorts and t- shirt weather!

Giro Ambient City Gloves

leave a comment »

2015/01/img_0538.jpgI 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.

2015/01/img_0558.jpgThe 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!
