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!

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!

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!

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!

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
