Prudential Ride London (formerly London SkyRide)
So i just signed up and i am ready for this years Prudential Ride London. Which if you look at the route is the London SkyRide Route from a few years ago. But this time I’m not going to do a quick rush around the route, and then there is also a show at the Excel Centre. so it should be exciting. going early this year in the morning since i will be traveling from Brighton with my rust bucket (my bike) but should be a nice day out.

This is my bike tattoo. I got it for my mom because she is a cyclist and has always emphasized the importance of moving forward. It partially covers some old scars which serves as a reminder of how powerfully healing mothers can be.

Chrome and Merit
So I really want a chrome bag, yes thats probably “hipster” but to be honest i don’t give a shit. i’ve also discovered mock merit badges. and then i thought you know what what the hell i’ll make my own. I have this thing i like to put patches on my bags. I have flags on one of all the countries ive been too. and now im on this merit badge kick. so what better way then hopefully on a new mini metro chrome bag.
Here are a few of the Merit badges i have created
Denver Colorado Merit Badge
Shenanigen Films (my Film Trailer Company)
National Rail commuter merit badge
Tern folding bike merit badge
and finally my Editor Merit Badge (thats what my day job is)
and these are how they would look. yes i know im a geek
Breeze South Downs Ride
This is a ride i did about a month ago. It was part of the Breeze South Downs group. it was quite peaceful and i had a good time
So i just read about a fairly new company that has come over to the UK, but don’t ask me to say it outloud i would probably pronounce it wrong but the company is Kokkedal
They are in the business of making Town Bikes and Beach Cruisers that gives Electra a run for their money. Kokkedal may not have the funky paint designs and the spare bits and pieces yet, but they certainly dont have the heafty price tag that Electra does
and of course that now opens the never ending debate on what is my new bike going to be…just when i thought i had my mind set on a Tern
so these two beauties are who i would go for. again Electra has the better looks, but Kokkedal comes off like the conservative older brother…

To be honest i have not ridden on one to see how it is compared to the others, to be honest I am certainly not the person to be doing compare and reviews, i’ll leave that to all the pros in the Cycling mags, but i just wanted to share a really cool up and coming company and what bikes i would personally choose
