Ride For Donuts

leave a comment »

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.

When darkness came we then headed back to central as we said farewell till another ride.. 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
Cheers Ryan, Rich, Mike and Ryan good ride!

Do’nut Ride Review

with one comment

This sunday Fixed Gear London hosted Le Tour Do’nut. A cruise to Dunkin Donuts in Hounslow followed by a quick blast to Krispy Kreme in Enfield.

We met at 11am outside Niketown & made our way over to Hounslow via Shepherds bush then along the A315 beside the River Thames. It was a great day for a ride, 21 degrees with a cool breeze. Everybody arrived on an empty stomach, so our mouths were watering all the way down to Hounslow, this made the road slippery & Duke took a little spill on his pink Dosnoveta near Notting Hill arts club. Luckily some super cool police officers came along & even offered some water & first aid.

The ride to Dunkin Donuts was pretty much mishap free otherwise, a traffic free Sunday morning which felt a lot like the ride to Paris last year, good memories. We made it to Dunkin Donuts around 1pm & chowed down on some sweet treats. Apple crumble, strawberries & cream, glazed, raspberry jam – everything sounded good after 2 hours riding. We ate, digested, got brainfreeze & sugar rush from the shakes then made our way back to Central London so we could head over to Enfield for some more sugar soaked treats.

The ride back to Central London was a little hairy too, a slow front puncture for Moses 20mins after we left Hounslow, but we got moving quickly after it got patched up. Next it was Mikeys turn, a catastrophic crash in Hammersmith (which sounded worse than it actually was). Some street signs appeared out of nowhere & took Mikey flat out. He was completely ok & that was the last of the days mishaps. Thanks to the guy across the road whose first suggestion was that we upload crash up on youtube.

After a wait in Camden for a couple more riders we headed to Enfield via Finsbury Park, Wood Green, Palmers Green then Winchmore Hill. A few climbs later & after manoeuvring our way through a protest in Wood Green we were there. We upped the pace on the ride there so our stomachs were growling when we arrived.

We were tempted to join in with musical chairs at the kids party going on at Krispy Kremes but we had our own games in the car park outside. When realised that Donuts wouldn’t be enough junk food we combined the sweet stuff with KFC & McDonalds to appease the hunger, life is good.

After some more digestion it was time for the games. Longest skid, trackstand, drift through the gap & kick the can, Mike even got some whip skids in on his motorbike, sketchy. Indra won the longest skid + drift, Kamal won the track stand & also got some man points for the skid out of the carpark, over the kerb, through the bush & straight into a wall ride on the Krsipy Kreme HQ.

We handed out some prizes & made our way back down the A10, fast. A successful ride which we plan on making a thing of so look out on the blog & Instagram for more info. Next up sprints – see you soon guys.

IMG_6939.JPGToday I’ve organised a short bike ride to a burger place called Dip and Flip at Battersea rise, it was a unofficial Johnny cupcakes ride for the fans or anyone that knows JC as a brand, it was a small number of us. Traffic today was busy because of protests and most roads were close. It felt like a Monday morning ride, in and out of traffic squeezing into gaps. But finally when we got there we had the best award. Thank you for the guys that came out today. Till the next one!

I’ve done the leukaemia bikeathon, solo ride. Took me 4hrs 30mins doing 52 miles with 3 breaks. Took one turning wrong, had burrito on my mind half the time, spoke to some random people on bikes. But all in all I had a blast! Oh plus feels good doing 62 miles and eating free banana’s. But it’s not too late to donate so please if you can support my ride for this charity, please and thank you.
