Today was the day that the tickets for the Tweed Run 2017 went on sale. When I remembered that the start time for purchasing them was 12:00 p.m. I logged on shortly afterwards and managed to get myself a place.
The Tweed Run is a brilliant idea and simply a case of dressing up in as much tweed as one dares and cycling around London, for some on old-style bicycles. You can read about the previous Tweed Runs I have been on by clicking on 'Tweed Run' in the sidebar. There are even some links to video.
In all this will be my 5th Tweed Run having attended in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. I always say that it will be my last however I keep coming back for more. I suspect being a bit of a controlled extrovert (in other words when it suits me and on my terms) it draws me in.
It looks as if this year I might actually be getting a press pass. I will have to see if this comes about but it would be rather nice.
Sadly, as always the tickets for the Tweed Run have all sold out. I get the feeling that they could release triple the amount and still sell out within minutes of release.
This will certainly be a date to look forward to in the diary and I really must get my act together with regards some more tweed!
