New video – “The Loneliness of the Urban Night Rider”
Here it is folks, my new video, served chilled but now with added super-duper widescreen.
“The Loneliness of the Urban Night Rider”
I know, I know it breaks quite a large number of STW taboos and all, but the STW London Posse will know where I am coming from.
Oh, and Mr Nutt, the monkies were all in their little monkey beds when I recorded this, so it’s safe for you to watch.
Click on the pic below for three and half minutes of sublimely chilled XC urban riding, a little bit deeper, a little bit darkerPosted 8 years agoMrNuttMember
I can’t help thinking about what Princess Diana might have been thinking if she was thinking about riding in Gibraltar at night?
Probably something along the lines of “those furry little needle tooth faced bastards, I’ll slit their **** throats in their sleep the little bastards”, I like to think that should Princess Diana still be alive she would have collected those hairy little shits up in a lorry and driven them across a mine field. She was like that, selfless in her hatred of tiny monkeys.
oh and where’s your **** helmet you psycho!Posted 8 years ago
I had to google FTW and came up with various variants. Am still not too sure if you liked the video or not.
Nothing wrong with pirates 😀

Cheers. Matt – you can also add riding tracks more cheeky than a week’s riding with SFB. Rudeboy and his gang got a bit slated for riding on pavements, I seem to have escaped that. Other taboos – v shonky riding (although I left off one clip where I get some airtime as the shot was too dark, honest), jazz funk, Etnies and yeah, squeaky brakes, or basically braking in general where others would have just flown down heh.
Hi – I don’t need a helmet as I had been watching Jedi’s videos prior to filming and didn’t crash once. Well, err – actually there are some embarrasing outtakes, which brings me to
I live on the side of a very steep rock, and rather than roads in the Old Town there are also “ramps”. These are stepped roads that have concrete ramps for mopeds. Those “planks” are concrete, and can be incredibly steep (I had to reshoot a few things a few times :-)). I assume they are for prams and wheel barrows etc.
Muddy Fix – no – I am at one with the animal kingdom and I think I caught the dog post p.
And finally 2unfit2ride
I am a man who has to suffer for his art. No one raised a statue to a critic. This isnt prentious w***, it is deeper than deep, you just need to go back and watch a number of times to begin to delve into the deeper meansing and symbols. I add a certain missing ingedient that is missing from the likes of Kranked, Roam, New World Disorder – U dig?Posted 8 years ago
It’s a bandana. It may not have looked it but there was quite a cold wind that night.
It wasn’t just me who lived through the acid house years was it? I mean how controversial can a mere bandana be?? 😀
The tune was “Summer’s Gone” by Zelijko Kerleta and is on my friend Russ Dubury’s Afro and Latin jazz compilation “Jazz Bizniz 2.”
Oh and I forgot to add I yearn for praise from Pook. He posted a chilled video a month or two back with some ground style camera angles. That’s when I thought I’d have a go with my Singletrack vid and this one. When I get praise from the great man Pook himself i know I shall have finally made it.
There were some other shots too I didn’t get as there was a gang of kids hanging around and they were expecting me to do all sorts of tricks and all. Quite embarrassing really when I can’t even wheelie heh.Posted 8 years ago
do you mean this video simon?Posted 8 years agoenfhtMember
“Scooz me ‘av yoo got a cigarette pleez….CHECK ME YOUR KONA” !!!!
God I hate London, Gibraltar looks much more safer and fun
I just got confirmation from someone “in the know” that if I simply turn right instead of left on one of my “urban routes” I run the very likely risk of getting scalped by large groups of “yootz” with knives and guns, (oh and my bike nicked). I guess that’s called urban “enrichment”.
Cue RudeBoy’s pitiful response telling me I’m a nazi hate filled evil bastard….Posted 8 years ago
Hi – just had a look through some of your vids (ncie tune on that one) but I don’t think it is there.
I think it was a singlespeed vi with canal footage, and some woods, and then some out-takes at the end with you running back up a hill to the camera.
Maybe it wasnt you or maybe I drempt it or something??
Yeah – Gibraltar is something like the third most safest country in the world. V little crime, and most of the crime here are locals drug smuggling. The government appear to be corrupt as heck mind but that’s another story.Posted 8 years ago
Ji – yeah, the lighting is really yellow, and with a decent camera and a rider such as your good self the video would really be a whole differen t ball game. There really cannot be that many riders slower or more shonky down the steps, but hey, I’ve never claimed to be a riding god, I just enjoy getting out and about.
RD – I always wear those underpants on my head when out riding heh
