The third annual 2011 London Tweed Run

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.
