Frist Puncture

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…

Lache London

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

A Day On The Velodrome

leave a comment »

Back in October my wife got me a track session to the Lee Valley velodrome for my birthday present, so today I went to the track for the first time ever. I was scared and excited at the same time, the only thing I had on my mind was I hope I’ll stick to the corners and not slip!

It was funny hearing people say “ah, it feels funny riding a fixed bike, it will take some time to get use to it”. See I would say that when I’m on a free wheel bike. So the coach explained some rules and how to be safe on the track. This is the safest place to ride a bike, but that depends on how you ride on it!

After a few laps around the safe side of the track, we got onto the track itself. I didn’t hit the corners right way I wanted to see how it felt at the bottom, then each lap I started to go higher and faster till I felt right and natural. Going down the corner from that height gives you that ‘damn that was fast’ feeling.. It felt I was in a roller coaster ride. Got told off for over taking and not looking back, but I guess that’s the street side of me? Maybe or just having too much fun and forgetting there’s other people on the track.
It was a fun experience but I can’t see this for me on the long run, first I can’t ride as fast as I can, second I’m so use on having cars and other stuff in front of me and I like that feeling..
But I’m glad I did it!
Thanks Goldie for getting me this for my birthday.

This Sucks

Saturday gone I got hit at Millbank, next to Victoria tower gardens, in the morning while I was going to working. The sliver Mercedes was turning into a side street, he stopped thinking he saw me going by but then he changed his mind for some reason and went ahead into the street. Then bang I got hit and went flying over the front of his car and landed hard on the pavement and second after my bike over my head.
I’ve been off my bike for a few days and just walking fine, but my lower right leg isn’t 100% better, feeling discomfort and when I walk sometimes it gives me a sharpe pain. Wrist still hurst when I put pressure, and I hate the bus! Oh, also the guy did say it was his fault and hope he pays for all my damage on the bike and my bus fares, 14R isn’t looking to good at the moment.
