    I used to have to wear one of those thunderbird jackets. Probably still got one somewhere. Will people laugh at me if I wear it at Laggan?

    What was the point behind the “tweed run” other than the obvious?

    i think the general idea was to have a day out riding bicycles. it’s a hard concept to grasp for the non-cyclist but i believe they enjoyed themselves?
    i guess much like riding around a muddy field 20 times it’s something you have to try before saying you don’t like it.

    I’ve never tried that, and I know I don’t like it!!

    Does that make me a racist?

    i dunno. i haven’t ridden in tweed or lapped a muddy field so can’t decide if you are a bigot or not.

    des doing laps of Reading’s rubbish BMX tracks count as 20 laps of a muddy field?

    in which case having done both i prefer wearing tweed.

    Fantastic, love it, awsome. Cant wait to get me a set of Harris Tweeds & Plus Fours & go rip up Whites – if you get in my way Ill blast you with my sawn-off shotgun..KA-BOOM!

    Looks like great fun. Cycling needs more “turn up, ride, smile, have fun” events than all the willy-waving racing / who’s more faux-rugged competitions*

    I like it. Great threads, bit amateurs night on the beard front though. I’m going to get me a 1940s haircut tomorrow.

    Blimey, got a chip on your shoulder there MrSmith? You jumped down nickc’s throat a bit there! He was maybe assuming it was a charity ride, or raising awareness, or such like?

    It does look fun to me, but I can’t help but feel that its all a bit too cool for me, what with them mostly being fixie riders. And my dad wears tweed regularly, so its hardly a novelty to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Luckily I didn’t get what I went to get ie. razored sides grading up to a slicked back longer top. Rather a sharp short side parting, more of a late Tsar Nicholas look.

    Can’t you just pinch one off one of the Geography teachers at work? You’ll get leather elbow patches and everything.

    Jack Thurston was talking about this on his radio show recently – he was on the ride, and is one of the founder members of the Tweed Cycling Club. To be quite honest, it seems like a perefectly sensible thing – ride bikes suitable for the flatlands of London, don’t wear technical clothing* to go down the shops, smile, have fun.

    What’s not to like?

    *But if you want to keep your inner MTB geek alive, while still adopting this style, you can always buy this.

    There was a period in time, about 10 years ago, when my mate and I wore tweed jackets on our jaunts around the pubs of the Hazel Grove to Chapel area.

    My mate saw me riding down the A6 in High Lane:

    ‘I saw you the other day, going hell for tweed down High Lane!’

    A classic quote of my youth.

    Loving that lumo-tweed, might have to get a pair of those strides for the summer commute.

    Ed-O, I’m afraid you look more like a hobo who’s been smartened up for an interview / family event – trim that beard man! (jealous)

    I’ll have them off you!

    Ed-O, looking good there. Have any Will Oldham fans asked you for autographs yet?

    I want to join the tweed revolution too. The problem is, what pedals work with leather-soled shoes? And where can I purchase a handlebar-mounted ashtray?

    Ed, loving the current beard. Still takes a lot to out do the massive ‘burns though… ๐Ÿ˜€

    I would have loved to take part in the Tweed Ride. A lot of great people having a fun day on bikes riding around London. Ace.
