One need only take a peek at my Instagram feed to see my undeniable evolution into an East London cliché, eh? Craft beer, vintage bikes and the internet, dude.
Anyways, in the spirit of embracing oneself, here is a wee update in the world of me.
My New Ride
Alright, you blasted London cyclists. I finally get it. I get it. I’m on board. It’s the best freaking way to get around the city. Just took a while for my bus-loving self to get pedalling…but I’m happy I did!
I’m still saving up for a lighter road bike for more hard-core cycling, but I scored this free one that my boyfriend’s mum had lying around the shed – a vintage Raleigh shopper. Needs a bit of TLC but is decent enough for short jaunts around my ‘hood. Will stick to Barclays bikes for longer journeys for now, I think.
Craft Beer & Social Media….Hello Untappd!
As I become more and more of a “refined” (read: fussier, douchier) beer drinker, I’ve been stoked about trying all the different brews from this wonderful craft beer renaissance making it’s way to the UK. Some of my beer loving cohorts recently suggested that I download the Untappd app, an NYC/LA startup which is making drinking even more social.
With Untappd, I’m able to rate, review & share beer from the app – and the more I check-in, the more data is has to provide me with suggestions for new beers and bars based on my taste. I can also see which beers my friends are drinking and where – which is great if you have friends who are particularly knowledgeable about where to drink in London.
Give it a go!
