As I’m counting down my holiday with my family to Gran Canaria, I saw this new video by Patrick. After watching this, I won’t sleep till that date comes. His riding videos is always one of the best to me, you always see him challenging himself.

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!

Ride For Donuts

Yep, went for a ride to get some Dunkin donuts at Hounslow. A sweet tooth kinda person. I didn’t go alone, had some of my good mates with me.

The day started off rubbish with some light rain, it was dull and cold. But as we went on the day the sun was breaking out of the clouds showing some kind of life and most of all happiness. It made us feel good with the sun shining down on us.

Then as you know it we where there. Made sure we got yourself comfy as we were going to be there for a while.

They’ve got some good donuts and awesome filter coffee!

So we thought it will be good to burn off them donuts by going to Richmond park, as always when we got there it was cars versus bikes.

It was also my first time in a while that I was on my bike for most of the day, felt good and coming home to read some magazine given to me from the guys and girls at Pestle and Mortar clothing called The Deck magazine.2015/01/img_0646.jpg
