London for the Weekend

Well I've only been to London Twice now and i still haven't been everywhere that's touristy. The hotel was really nice and we even took a trip to Greenwich, there was a really interesting shop Shiva Head Shop it had a tattooists next to it but it sold lads of funky stuff like vaporizers, Shisha Pipes and Bongs, i took a couple of pictures of this wicked little shop.

Saturday was a good night out although slightly expensive compared to the prices in the North. I got quite a few good pictures. Mainly stuff like tower of London and the London eye

Weekend Away

Well I've finally decided to head down to the big smoke at the weekend, I've left it pretty late but I've managed to get booked in to one of the few kings cross hotels, which means I'm pretty central to everything, I'm getting the train down on Friday afternoon and then back on Sunday afternoon.

Hopefully I'll get out Friday night with a few mates i have down there. Saturday I'll do some sight seeing and just have a potter around with my mates. I must remember to take my camera down with me, I'm sure I'll get some good pictures whilst I'm down there.

It took me a while to find a bed and breakfast london as there are so many out there on Google you end up trawling through loads of websites and before you know it you've lost 2 hours of your life.

Bike riding

I managed to get a short ride in last week of around 20 miles and it was mainly road riding which was a change but it was a good mix of up and down hill. The ride was to a local village which is about 10 miles away. i got there in about 40 minutes which i didnt think was bad at all since i thought it would take me at least 1 hr and then i set a target of 45 minutes. On the way back i hit that extra 5 minute bracket just before a big hill. coming back i was around the same time. but it seemed a lot quicker as theres more down hill stretches on the way back.

Theres a nice little fashion boutique at the village which must make a nice rack of sales due to busy summer months, there was a great window display with varying makes from Scoot to Firetrap with some great t shirt designs in. I'll have to nip over this weekend in the car and take a better look inside.

I'm yet to do any night riding, but i really want to  get some half decent lights either Hop or Lupine ones

Well its nearly the weekend

This week has flown by, seriusly i cant beleieve how quickly friday has come round. Hopefully i'll be able to get out on the bike this weekend which would be good. I'm looking at starting night riding though due to time restrictions with work.

night riding really adds a whole new diemension to riding as trails pass a lot quicker when your riding and your vison is limited.

F1 still 9 days away

well we are still days away from the next F1 race over in belgium at Spa. this 3/4 week break that they have taken seem to have taken ages to pass. Hopefully it will start as a dry race at spa and then chuck it down so that we can have a interesting race, i wouldn't be suprised to see some engine failures soon as Spas going to be pretty hard on engines and then Monza the race after spa, and monza is one of the toughtest races on engines due to the time on full throttle and the altitude making air thinner and the engine working harder.

I've just had a nice big delivery dropped of at home i had a few franklin and marshall t shirts and some firetrap jeans, all in it came to about £200 which i didnt think was to bad.

Speak soon

Riot No More

Well it finally looks like the madness from last week appears to have calmed down and gone away now, well apart from everyone going to court for it. I cant believe how many varied workers where involved from teachers and olyimpicans to young jobless people.

I'm not sure whats going to happen this week but i guess the news will still be full of riot headlines, which i guess will be no suprise for many people.

Some premiership games where cancelled due to the earlier riots but iu cant really understand why when it calmed down towards the end of the week

Copy Cat Rioters

Well after the initial riots in London it now looks like most of the major big UK cities have got copy cat rioters. I wonder if tonight will bring more riots and looting. One thing that i missed last night was the major live coverage and w where dependant on some guy called Mohamed who had to run off when the rozzers came.

When Croydon was on fire we had helicopter coverage which really gave a good aspect of how bad things where.

If theres looting again tonight i wonder if it will cross over the pennines which currently seems to be where the rioting and looting has been below.
