The Tweed Run. A Brilliantly British Event.

Cordings became aware of the Tweed Run in 2009 when tweed devotees started coming in to get kitted out for the event. After a bit of investigating we discovered that here were like minded people, who understood the joys of proper clothing and a leisurely ride through our wonderful city.

Last year, in 2012 we took the plunge, and sponsored their Dashing Dame and Dapper Chap award. Graham Coxon, a Dapper Chap in his own right, kindly judged the competition for us, choosing a winner was much more difficult than we imagined!

It was a truly memorable day, with the whole Cordings team either on vintage cycles (including a tandem), cheering the riders on as they went past 19 Piccadilly or manning our tent at the tea stop. Our ‘cap a pigeon’ competition was a winner, and to our amusement attracted many a live pigeon before the riders appeared!

There were some truly inspired outfits on the ride, with a wonderful mix of vintage and new tweeds. This year, the fifth anniversary of the Run, we are again sponsoring the Dashing / Dapper awards and are really looking forward to a truly unique event.
