Friday night saw us take part in FGLDN’s first checkpoint race, symptoms this was well organised by Andy Ellis and had some fantastic prizes on offer amongst which was the forthcoming DVS x Cadence shoes. Best finisher amongst us was Alex Le Feuvre who came in 5th. I’ve just heard that the next race will take place on July 30th. More details to follow! Now’s a good time for a an event reminder for the Fast Friday event this week!
Angus, tooth continued our international relations on his recent trip to Hong Kong where he became the 10th clip in a series of interviews charting the world wide fixed scene by Flwrider called ‘frames’.
Flwrider was born from a collective idea that cycling in Hong Kong can be a true part of a pedaling lifestyle and breaking the boundaries of a stale urban cycling culture.
Riders that form Flwrider are dedicated to bringing cycling related topics, subjects and informing people of the latest urban cycling developments happening internationally as well as locally in Hong Kong. To connect and to share with the worldwide bike community that is expanding through the web.
In Flwrider we want to represent 3 core elements, Hong Kong – The Jewel of the Orient, Cycling and documenting our journeys.
Through riding, documenting, meeting like minded people on rides and representing a niche cycling culture, we aim to reach new people and hope many will join us to explore riding wherever you are.
Here’s what they and Angus had to say about the 5th floor…
So for our tenth interview, me met up with Angus Sung who is reppin the 5th Floor crew based in London. 5th Floor are a pretty new riding crew/blog but that doesn’t mean they’re any less active. What you first notice about 5th Floor is that it all looks pretty well designed, and this we think really represents their intentions. Angus tells us how 5th Floor started and what crazy projects they have in store… And it all sounds pretty exciting. It really is happening in London and 5th Floor are present in the epicenter of it all.
