My favorite bike saddle company Brooks send me to London this weekend to make a video report on the Tweed Run. That is a bike ride where everyone dresses up in Tweed and rides on vintage bicycles through central London.
Even though it is only the second time travel of this kind which Ted Young-Ing and his friends organized, the online registration for the 400 places was full within 45 minutes. Of course many more tweeders showed up at the Tate Britain starting point, so that we were around 600 riders. For me the best things about this event were the friendly reactions from the people in the streets and that the riders talked and acted according to their new tweed outfits. Maybe next year this event will be called the Gentleman's Run. Here is a little video from the organizers.
