I wanna tweed jacket!
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?Posted 9 years ago
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.thomthumbMemberKitMember

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 🙂Posted 9 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
I’ve got the beard, just need the jacket.
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.Posted 9 years agomyfatherwasawolfMember
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!’

I have several Billy Childish records for sale . No-one else wants them.
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?Posted 9 years ago
