Monday Fix No 6 Sky Ride

What a kick start to my Sunday! I set off on an early morning ride to Stockwell Skate Park to watch the filming of Fixed Gear London’s Christopher Delia before leaving to participate in the Mayor of London’s Sky Ride. This event is held every year for the public to have the opportunity to cycle free of traffic around a six mile loop of the vibrant city’s most famous land marks. It was a hugely successful event, well organized by the officials of the ride. I saw pimped up bikes and crazy outfits, BMX’s, Fixed Bikes, Tandems, Go Bikes, Road Bikes and tiny little children on bikes. It was a lot of fun. There was plenty of entertainment en route and the weather was fine and perfect for cycling with not a drop of rain in sight!

My personal highlights were  flying through the tunnel along Embankment to the beat of live drums and passing Buckingham Palace, waving to the Queen. Im sure she was watching us all! I think there will be a few bruises starting to appear today after all the stacks I saw along the way, hope everyone is OK! The London Skyride is a great way to encourage us all to live a cleaner, greener, healthier life style.  Thank you Boris, we heart you!!

One thought on “Monday Fix No 6 Sky Ride

  1. I am an avid cyclist and go through several pairs of glasses a year. The glasses I had been buying had a knack for falling apart after a few weeks. I can’t justify buying the really expensive sunglasses because I will occasionally lose a pair during a ride (I sometimes start before the sun comes up) or break them in other ways (like accidentally sitting on them). I stumbled across these glasses out of desperation because even at $15 a pop contantly breaking sunglasses adds up. These sunglasses have been amazing thus far. The lenses don’t fall out and the frames seem to be very sturdy (but light). The size is also great for me. If you have struggled to find reasonably priced sunglasses that fit well and do not fall apart then these might be your answer. To this point they have been for me. I will be wearing a pair this Saturday at the Hotter Than Hell 100. Highly recommended.
