  • Been a lovely day.

    Most suave skitch ever.

  • Had a splendid time on the Tweed Run yesterday, and met many splendid people, many of whom are probably on this forum. I'd love to know who was who, so have risked the wrath of the New Thread Police to start this companion thread to Names and Faces to Bikes. (£1 donation on its way).

    It's also an excellent excuse to show of your outfit one more time.

    To start:

    S.Walrus, riding the Penguin Books inspired Walrus Flyer.

    (edit: busted by the New Thread Police, which is a shame, as I thought it would be nice to have a thread to help people identifiy each other without getting derialled by more general discussion, and without it just being on the tenth page on the thread about the ride, rather than the riders)

  • Funniest random pedestrian comment ... "Oh look - it's the Tory Party ..."

    ahah yeh i was right by them when they said that too!

  • Teddy,

    Are there any spoke cards left for purchase? I bought one at the start, along with the fine enamel badge, and promptly managed to lose it en-route. I believe East End Images suffered a similar loss.

    Thank you again for such a wonderful day. You should be so proud that all your hard work resulted in such a professionally ran event that brought so much joy to so many people. I'm smiling as I look at the pictures and feel kind of naked cycling this morning without heavy wool and a moustache in my peripheral vision.

    not my video btw, but well done to whoever made it. i'm sure there are going to be lots of them. Has anyone seen anything in the press about the event? I would have thought it was on the local news at least

  • yes, spoke cards and badges still left! all monies to charity.

  • that was brendans video?
    i recognise a few of the shots

    Awesome, I'll definitely take a spoke card. Will they be sold through the Tweed Run shop or direct from yourself/nominated persons?

  • i'll probably bring them 'roudn with me for the next week or so, but yeah i'll put them on the shop, too

  • that was brendans video?
    i recognise a few of the shots

    it's from Mark of http://ibikelondon.blogspot.com/ - he's got a LOT of pix to process as well - expect a blog post sometime soon ;)

  • Yes, I was your tea boy riding gold Freddie Grubb

  • It's been said many times above, but I don't think that is any reason not to say it again. Well done Teddy and Jacqui for organising the whole shebang and thank you very much to the marshals and everyone else for making it go so smoothly!

    I had a lovely time and am already looking forward to next year. I am also finding it very hard to give up the tweed and facial hair, if only every day could be tweed run day.

    Chapeau! all round.

    thanks for the cigar eastendimages, it was gorgeous!

  • well done teddy and jacqui for putting in such a splendid effort to make yesterday go so well- i love you both. i want to eat one of you and have babies with the other, cant decide who for what though. how much did you have to pay to get such glorious weather?
    special thanks to the marshalls who in such a firm and gentle way guided us through the mean streets of london. well done everybody you all looked fabulous.

    @tarik73 lovely to meet you hope you had a good day out.

    A slightly unfortunate impression of his camera. :)
