Last year on my birthday I decided to take my pirate radio bike cruise to a whole new level. I wanted to add food to the mix and make a snack cruise, too. I had experimented with the snack cruise concept back in my lowrider bike days in Canada in the 90's but this time we went all out.
I got a bunch of fruit boxes from up at Ridley Road Market and we attached them to to the backs of about a half dozen of the bikes. We then filled them with foodstuffs that could be easily picked up out of the trays while riding. We had some quesadillas on a stick, pizza slices, chips and dip, pintxos style tapas, fruit wands, and of course, corndogs.
I had a few soundsystems on my bike as well as a 1 watt FM radio transmitter. Everyone else brought a radio and tuned into the station so we were a all encompassing hive of sound. It's amazing to be in the centre of the pack and be totally surrounded by the music as you ride.
We made our way through the city, snacking as we went and amazingly, there we no wipeouts, not a drop of dip was spilled and we celebrated on the top of Primrose Hill with some ice cold beers and dancing. It would be great to do it again and add some handlebar bbqs. Now that would be epic.
