At Circa, we love our tweeds and the stylish chaps who wear them – so for like minded folk, may I present the London Tweed Run, held in a suitably cold English January.
Now why can’t we have wonderful events like this here? Trust the Brits to start something like this. Here are the details taken from the London Fixed-Gear and Single Speed:
Ladies. Gentlemen. Announcing the first LFGSS Winter Dress Club Run: a social ride with a bit of style.
We will be gathering for 2pm in Hanover Square. Please be prompt; at 2, we’ll head down to H Huntsman & Sons, 11 Saville Row to begin the ride. The route will be a fairly leisurely ride through London. No need to pack Kendal Mint Cakes, the ride will include a stop at a tea shop at Tour de Ville for mid-ride fortitude, and will finish at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club for refreshments and cheer.
Proper attire will of course be expected, so dapper gents and elegant ladies, polish off your lugged steel beasts and prepare your best outfits. Suggested attire: woolen plus fours, harris tweed jackets, flat caps, fair isle jumpers, alpaca coats, merino wool team jerseys, cycling skirts and perhaps a jaunty cape for the ladies, cravats or ties for gentlemen, and of course a hip flask of brandy.
Be sure to dress with a bit of panache, there will be prizes awarded.
