Some years ago I was lucky enough to get an entry in the second charity bicycle run called The Tweed Run which took place in London in 2010 and what a fun day it was.
I was reminded of this today when listening to Harry and Edna on the wireless with his radio show on the event. https://www.mixcloud.com/harryandedna/tweed-run-2017/
Ever since I did the event I have thought how much fun it would be if there was a similar type of run near where I live and to this end I am putting out the request for slightly eccentric tweed wearing bicyclists who live near Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire.
I have over the years put out feelers to various cycle clubs and cycle shops to see if I can find like minded people who may want to organise such an event with no luck, so I am now working on plan B.
The Flitch Way is a local walking and cycling path from Bishops Stortford to Braintree and at 15 miles would seem an ideal route for a tweed clad bicycle ride.
Having given up temporarily on a full blown event with hundreds of riders I am now looking at a much smaller gathering of perhaps half a dozen slightly eccentric men and women who may wish to join me and hopefully set a trend whereby many others may join us on future rides.
Should any old bicycle owning, tweed wearing, slightly eccentric individuals wish to join me please don’t hesitate to contact me, for you never know, from little acorns large oaks do grow.
