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.

The weather was great the view was awesome, the people was RAD!


Awesome view?

You should see the guys at the bottom doing a pee…


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!

Hello From KamalRB!

leave a comment »

Hello everyone my names Kamal and I’m the newest member of FixedGearLondon, I just thought I’d introduce myself and give a little insight into my life on bikes. Firstly thanks to all the guys from FGL for welcoming me and allowing me to be a part of everything you do! I’ve been riding fixed for the last 6 years and I starting out with a crappy off the peg single speed I have since covered pretty much every style of fixed gear bike from freestyle, NJS and a brief weekend trial of a lopro (my back can’t hack it). I’m 20 years old and I’ve lived in West London my whole life although I’m all over London cycling and also cover most of the city for work as well.

My current stable consists of only two track bikes; the first is my Brooklyn Machine Works Gangsta Track V2 which is one of my top favourite fixed gears ever. I’ve restored it to a degree from a rattle canned black beater into a bright green beast. I recently managed to get a hold of a V1 fork from BMW as part of their latest production run which I’ve always wanted. I love the Gangsta because it’s bomb proof and so versatile.


My other bike is a GT GTB, another one of my top five, which was rawed by a previous owner and looks MEAN. I’ve always loved the triple triangle frame (this is my second) and mine has a steel columbus fork which I think suits the frame more than the standard (although I’m on the lookout for a Wound Up ;) hint hint). It’s a comfortable bike but still more than capable when i want to put my head down and go fast, which is the reason I bought it.

Now that the bikes are out of the way a bit more into my background; essentially if it rolls on two wheels I want to know how to fix it and I’ll have a go at riding it. I spent the last two years working for one of the big UK bike retailers which gave me an endless pool of experience but took up a lot of my free time and slowed down my riding. I’ve recently moved into mechanic work which is a lot more enjoyable and a lot less time consuming, so this summer I’m hoping to spend a lot more time working on and riding my bikes!

I’m always up for talking about bikes, feel free to give me a shout if you see me about on the road and I hope to see a load of you guys out on a ride soon. -KamalRB

Volvo: Life Paint

with one comment

So there’s a new type of paint thats out in London, spray on 3M. You can put it on your bike but not sure if you want to do it on your carbon. But put it on fabrics, I used loads on my trainers and some on my bag. Got carried away spraying things, came out well when you flash a strong light at it. But last night going home I could see some of it as car lights hits it. Today it rained and still have some on it, so its good so far. I’ll say give it a try and see how it does for you.

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!
