In what may be the greatest idea ever concieved, cities all over the globe appear to be embracing the twin joys of Tweed and Two Wheels.
The Tweed Run is a group bicycle ride through the centre of their home metropolis, dressed in the tweed garb of traditional british cycling attire, particularly tweed plus four suits. Any bicycle is acceptable on a Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated.
This year myself and snapper chum Sweeney hope to get down, hook up with friend Chaswell and represent the Harris Tweed. Timing may be tricky, a mad dash from the lambing in Lewis may be in order, but it should be worth the effort.
