What-ho Dames & Chaps!

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 finally have my outfit together for the Tweed Run! The Shoes and the Bag were the last items needed to complete it… almost had a breakdown at work today as the delivery didn’t show up until 16:00 – and our Post Room closes at 16:30! Just a quick iPhone picture of it – there will of course be proper pictures and details (including accessories) on the day, but this is a taster of it 🙂 Again, if anyone wants to meet / say “hello” on Saturday, drop me a message on Twitter (@ladyvelo) or email me using the link on the blog… see you on Saturday… Pip Pip! 🙂
It may not have been blazing hot, but finally the sunshine touched East London over the weekend. Me and The Boy took advantage of this & got on our bikes for a Cycle Saturday. It just so happened it was the weekend the Tweed Run registration packs were ready for collection, so cycling to Shoreditch to get them made perfect sense! As we were out so early, there was no way that we couldn’t do a bit of breakfast and food shopping… of course 😉 Taking a leisurely cycle via Tower Bridge, our first stop was Maltby Street in Bermondsey to buy the MOST delicious doughnuts (and Sourdough Bread) you will […]
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 […]
