On Saturday we headed out in glorious sunshine for the second annual Tweed Run.
This stylish bicycle ride through the Capital is like a tweed critical mass of all things vintage. Nearly tripling last year’s number of participants, this year, 400 cyclists took part in the ride through London. Pre-registration was full in just 2 hours!
At fourteen miles long, the route started at the Tate Britain, passed Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral and stopped halfway for a spot of tea in Kensington Gardens to the sounds of a string quartet. We finished at The Bathhouse in Bishopsgate where we celebrated by sipping on Hendricks Gin and Tonic, tantalising our taste buds with a mouthwatering selection of home made cakes and shimmying to the sounds of a swing band. Prizes were given for best moustache and best outfits.
The Tweed Run team are still totting up the totals, but so far the event has already raised £1400 for Bikes4Africa. Their online shop is still open with some dandy products so treat yourself now and help a fantastic cause! Click here to get your spoke cards and pins!
