Crazy

leave a comment »



As I was riding around London, the amount of times I saw people on their bikes and almost crashing into people and vehicles. It’s so crazy and you know what, they will still blame drivers for hitting into them! One person I saw he was getting so pissed off at a car that he almost buckle down while riding his bike right next to it and this was just when the light went green. Going home saw this person in full lycra swerving right to left in front of me, thinking what was this person doing. Getting in front of the cars and this was on the side of the river, so there was plenty of space. As I got near to him, this guy looked drunk and not knowing what he was doing.. Tired to give him a sign so I could talk to him but he was so zoned out, he just didn’t see me…

Becareful out there everyone, not just vehicles but silly riders!

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!

After seeing the guy that hit me, at the same place where the accident happened. I had my first flat tyre of the year! Is this guy giving me bad luck? On top of that my Gopro wasn’t on aswell. It was a long walk from Big Ben to Carnaby street. Sucks…

Today, I helped my mate Jody on a photo shoot by modelling his new cycling kit that will come out soon!
The jersey is comfy and the padding on the bib is awesome, the colour is on point and there is 3 different arm warmers colours to choose from. The jersey also comes in white. It’s always good to support small local business so please go and check it out. @lache.london

Uniqlo Heattech

leave a comment »

We put up a Uniqlo Heattech pursuit roller race a few weeks ago (November 14th). Uniqlo gave away free Heattech vouchers all night as people were sprinting on rollers to beat the fastest time, male and female took part on this rollapaluza sprit.
The event took place at Look mum no hands in old street, it was a prefect place to host this as a lot of people knew the place very well. A lot of people came down after work and got the place crowed. It was fun to see everyone there chatting away while watching people go crazy on the rollers, lot of smiles and a hell lots of cheering that night.
