Vickers in Tweed 2013

The Tweed Run, the metropolitan bicycle ride that brought some much needed sartorial elegance back to the bicycle celebrates fifth birthday and Vickers Bicycle Co will be there in London.

I’m extremely excited to be heading into town tomorrow to take part in this year’s Tweed Run.

2013 marks the fifth running of the event that sees the capital’s streets transported back to, what some would argue, is a more civilised time as they’re taken over by a swarm of dapper cyclists.

It’s a ride that demands the sartorial sophistication of Tweed – mine are currently having a jolly good airing – and a bicycle to match.

While the exact route is a closely guarded secret, some rough timings for spots along the run have been released.

So if you are coming along, please do say hello – I’ll be the gent dressed in the tweed jacket and flat cap.
