After a couple of weeks of hints and rumours, the date for the 3rd Tweed Run has been confirmed.

The what?

The Tweed Run, where some 400(ish) cyclists in rather more sensible attire than the excessively revealing Lycra sported by the more athletic of person parade en-mass around Central London on a range of antique or suitably modern yet  eccentric safety bicycles.

Booking for the tickets will open at midday on Saturday 26 February 2011 – and last year sold out within 45 minutes.

The Tweed Run itself will take place on Saturday 9th April.

I was a bystander last year – Peter Hendy a few weeks ago, one thing he mentioned about the Boris Bike was how it has changed the aesthetic of cycling in London away from the sporty clad couriers darting around the place to a more sedate, and undeniably sartorially vastly more appealing exercise.

Also – should you be of the Tweedy sort, then the editor of The Chap Magazine, Gustav Temple is giving a talk next week in Hackney.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
