Thanks to “The Wedding” and May Day, London was blessed with another long Bank Holiday Weekend – so what better way to spend the Sunday than a on a cycling Tweet-up? We met-up with the lovely @thefixedfactor for a cycle exploration of London. The route (which was suggested by Simon and planned by The Boy) covered some of the Docklands and the South East, including my old University stomping ground, Greenwich. The weather is still being kind for the BH Weekends, so riding in a T-Shirt and Jeans combo was not out of the question… here was my Bike Wardrobe for the day: Sunglasses: Gucci Earrings: Grandmothers Necklace: Tatty Devine T-Shirt: […]
What Ho dear readers! I must say, The Tweed Run has to be the best & most stylish cycling event in London… utterly spiffing! Riding towards St Paul’s in the splendid sunshine, I was filled with excitement – every so often we’d encounter other participants heading there, who dinged their bells or tooted their horns to say “Pip Pip!” This was an understatement of how friendly everyone there was going to be 🙂 Even though I knew that it was a big event, it was still breathtaking to see so many cyclists together in Paternoster Square all decked out in seriously chic Tweed… Cycling through the roads of Central London was unbelievable! The […]
I got a place on The Tweed Run 2011 🙂 Registration for it was an intense affair and the places went faster than I could have imagined. I knew that it was going to be busy – but I had no idea how fast it would go. I’d managed to register by 11:57… and then by 12:03… The Q&A Post on Registration that Tweed Run did earlier in the week said something about being on the page a “bit before noon” for registration. When I loaded up the site at about 9a.m (I had to be up early on Saturday morning for something else anyway) I saw a message saying it would be […]
Tweed Run 2011 is coming… and I want to be a part of it! The 3rd annual Tweed Run is happening in London on the 9th April 2011 and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that me and my Pashley will be there. The coverage & pictures of it last year (thanks to the Tweed Run site and bloggers such as ibikelondon) looked fantastic & convinced me that I’d take part in the next one.Registration is £5 and opens at midday on Saturday 26th Feb (this weekend) – and all proceeds go to bikes4Africa! I know that places go pretty fast… so that will be me glued to my MacBook in […]
This morning I cycled to Columbia Road Flower Market, to meet up with my good friend Tyla for a Photography shoot of the Market being set up. Nothing too unusual sounding about this – other than I left my house at 04:10a.m and completed my 1st cycle from Canning Town to another part of London and back… alone! Although I’ve cycled part of that route before, I’ve never done it solo – nor done anything like that on my Pashley before sunrise! It was fantastic & so peaceful. Seeing East London before it was “awake” from the Vélo-view was also an eye opener… from the odd Fox scuttling back home, […]
I went on a “Cycle-Date” from East London to Richmond with the Boy and our friend Tyla on Saturday. I was pretty excited about this, as it would be my 1st ‘real’ riding experience in London (and beyond) on Frankie – something that was long overdue! The date-plan: meet Tyla at Richmond Station & then cycle along the River to Hampton Court Palace. The weather was kind enough to hold back on the rain that we’ve been having in London this week (huzzah!) – allowing me to wear my planned cycle-chic for the day 🙂 I raided my wardrobe and put this together: This was my 1st time cycling in […]
