  • Ladies, Gentlemen,

    The third annual 2011 London Tweed Run will be held on 9 April, from 11:00 am. This friendly 10 mile jaunt around the Capital will take in London's famous sites –– including St Paul's, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Savile Row –– with a stop for a spot of tea, and ending with a bit of a knees-up out Shoreditch way.

    Registration opens at noon on Saturday 26 February 2011. Be sure to be quick about it; last year, all 400 spots were filled up within 45 minutes. This year, the ride will cost £5 to enter, with all proceeds going to Bikes4Africa, our designated charity.

    Now look here, proper attire is expected. Tweed suits, plus fours, bowties, cycling capes, and jaunty flat caps are all encouraged. Do your best for the highly-prized Best Dressed Man and Best Dressed Woman prizes. Dust off your vintage velocipede for the ride; prizes awarded for best vintage bicycle. If your bike isn't quite a classic, try your hand at the best decorated bicycle competition. And of course don't forget our world-famous Best Moustache prize -- open to both men and women, of course.

    We're happy to have back our heritage sponsors Brooks, Pashley, Hunstman, and Geo F Trumpers, and are pleased to welcome Aubin & Wills, who this year will be hosting the Aubin & Wills Tea Break.

    There'll be more announcements as the day gets closer. I do hope you can make it. Cheerio for now.

  • awesome

    you bringing the scrotes in the bike trailer?

  • Woo, hoo! - the one weekend in April I could make! Will be bringing my penny farthing this time :)

  • Scrotes????

    Fuck off!!

    Ha!

    Nah, this is going to be a ell earned solo mission, a bit of me time. And I fucking deserve it, if I say so myself!

  • Chappy on poster is riding the other way now - ah, puts the chainset on the correct side...

  • Awesome. I'm out of town on the 26th so I'll need to get someone sat in front of a computer for me!

  • Woo, hoo! - the one weekend in April I could make! Will be bringing my penny farthing this time :)

    Not on the same train as me I hope!

    Southerners will just think it's the way us northerners still get about!

  • Not on the same train as me I hope!

    Southerners will just think it's the way us northerners still get about!

    Not sure about the train this time - Virgin actually say "no penny farthings" despite the fact they take up the same space as one of these new-fangled safety bikes - virgintrains.co.uk/trains/ass­isted-travel-bikes/ Who even took the time to put a ban on penny farthings? - its like banning spats, or something else that hasn't been seen in 80-years...

  • YES! Can't Wait!!
    Will be camping by my computer...fastest fingers first :)
    Thus starts the hunt for chic tweed!

  • Sorry to post this in yet another thread, but how many tickets may one purchase at one time?

  • Off!
    Awesome.

  • due to demand, there's a limit of two tickets per registration session (i think... i'll check with ross our programmer extraordinaire to be sure about this), but you shouldn't have a problem registering if you get in at noon.

  • Any plans for new Tweed products for the event, Teddy?

  • Good luck with it Tweedies.

  • You not in, Skully?

  • It's the one weekend in April I'm free, this is excellent news... being on a train at midday on the 26th is not so good.
