Bicycle Rental

Posted by Mark

Although I personally prefer riding in the summer, now is actually the best time to ride a bicycle. Since not everyone owns a bicycle or wants to buy one I thought I would post about this instagram account that rents bicycles. They’re not cheap but I don’t think there is anyone else renting bicycles (that I know of). They charge KD5 for the first hour and then KD3 for every hour after. Delivery is included. The instagram account is @bike2u_kw and you can call them up or Whatsapp them on 94942122 to rent a bicycle.

Pure Fix Cycles in Kuwait

Posted by Mark

purefix

While checking the Qout Market instagram account I found out that there is a local dealer for Pure Fix Cycles. I had seen the bicycles online before on a bunch of lifestyle websites, they’re very minimal in design and are great simple city bikes that look great. Right now they don’t have a physical store just an instagram account (@pfcycles_kw) and they only have three bike models with two models costing KD120 and the one pictured above with glow in the dark wheels for KD150.

If you’re interested they’re going to have a stand at Qout Market this coming Saturday where you will be able to check the bikes out in person.

Paddleboard Rental in Kuwait

Posted by Mark

Since the weather has gotten really good DMboarding are now renting paddleboards for those interested in taking up the activity. The prices start at around KD29 for a week and includes free delivery. Not sure if they rent out for a day or weekend since their Instagram account shows only weekly and monthly rental prices. It’s more fun if you decide to rent them with friends since you could then go group paddleboarding which is a lot more fun than just you alone. For more details click [Here]

What started the GFC fight

Posted by Mark

The other day I posted videos from the GFC4 event when the crowd went crazy and everyone started fighting everyone. If you’re interested to know what started the fight its basically the knock out above. The guy in red and black shorts was taunting the other fighter with his hands down (Anderson Silva style I guess) when the other fighter knocked him out. The fans of the guy in the black and red shorts got pissed and started fighting. [YouTube]

Last night at the local MMA event GFC 4 a huge fight broke out. The fight started after supporters of a GFC fighter stormed the cage after he got knocked out. The fight initiated in various small cells around the arena but then turned into one large street brawl. According to previous UFC fighter Ray Elbe who was at the arena last night, he’s never seen anything like this ever before and he’s been involved with MMA for over a decade now.
