The Tweed Run


The London Fixed-Gear & Single-Speed forum held their first Tweed Run last Saturday. The social gathering brought together approximately 150 bike riders from the London area on a cruise around the historic city, starting at H Huntsman & Sons at 11 Savile Row to the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. The event suggested attire of elegant proportions including tweed & herringbone jackets, flat caps, wool ties, argyle cardigans, and anything else that keeps a gentleman looking dapper. Along with various awards in play, including “most dashing dame,” “most dapper chap,” and “best mustache,” the event held a draw for prizes benefiting Bikes4Africa, an organization that refurbishes bicycles for students to attend classes in rural areas of Africa.
