James Fry contacted me and want to pass on an upcoming event for October 15th. In the vein of previous tweed rides comes:
The Tweed Run
A metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style.
From a press release:
After seeing great success in London over the last three years and a jaunt around beautiful Florence, Italy in June, the charity bicycle event with a very British sensibility is coming to New York on 15th October. The Tweed Run is an event that sees cyclists of all ages dressed in timeless period attire and pedalling their way through a modern metropolis to raise money for a good cause. The route includes our famous Tea Break, a halfway stop where participants are served pots of tea and cucumber sandwiches. Sponsors of the event include Rugby Ralph Lauren, bicycle manufacturers and outfitters Pashley Cycles and Brooks England, traditional barbershop chain Murdock and Jeeves and Jericho: The Jolly Good Tea Company. Proper attire will of course be expected, so dapper gents and elegant ladies should prepare their best outfits. Suggested attire includes: woollen 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.
