NYC: The metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style

Monday, October 24, 2011




Crikey! Just little over two Saturdays ago a group of awesome people took to the streets of Greenwich Village for the 3rd Annual Tweed Run in New York City. The metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style was full of attractions including live music, dancing, fun prizes, English tea and delicious scones throughout the day. Each participant was encouraged to wear their best British cycling gear which included the always elegant tweeds, posh hats, long socks, cycling skirts and capes for the ladies or oh-so stylish bow ties/cravats for the gentlemen. They even had a best moustache competition!

Darlings, doesn’t that sound like fun? I’d love to dress up and make my mom proud! Did you take part? Would you? xo

P.S: Here is a sneak peak into the British event last April and here are some more photos of the NYC Tweed Run!

I want pretty much everyone's clothes from these pictures. I'm seriously jealous of my husband right now... Over the weekend he found and AMAZING tweed jacket at a thrift store for like $4.

Speaking of which, remember back when I joked that I should get a tweed jacket with elbow patches and be a female version of the 11th Doctor for Halloween? Slight twist on that concept - the husband suggested that he would be The Doctor (which is why he got the tweed jacket) and I'd be Amelia Pond. Personally, I think he just wanted to get me to wear the police officer kiss-o-gram outfit. ;-)

I adore that people can come together like this and have fun and share a love for style and biking.
Tweed is classic Autumn and love the way the girls have put it all together.
