    What, no tweed helmets?

    Chrison January 27, 2009 @ 8:41 AM:

    makes me very proud

    Sethon January 27, 2009 @ 9:22 AM:


    I think these Herringbone offerings should fit the bill quite nicely.

    Handsome men in tweed riding fixed gears…it’s a dream come true. I wish the hipster bike messengers here in Boston would dress like this from time to time.

    I’m leaving next Wednesday night for the UK. I guess I should pack my tweed…

    my heart just stopped looking at just a fine group of riders! and I want to be friends with the biker who travels with his Jack.

    Am I the only one hoping there were a big scrum of Casuals around the corner?

    Thomon January 27, 2009 @ 12:09 PM:

    A tweed suit and a bicycle is all you need to be happy.

    girlon January 27, 2009 @ 1:16 PM:


    Any idea where one might be able to get a bicycle with that large of a basket? Would Landmark Vintage in the East Village carry one?

    Oh the possibilities…

    Mary Joon January 27, 2009 @ 1:28 PM:

    Love this! Not so crazy about knee-socks on men, but they have me at the gloves…

    victoria thorneon January 27, 2009 @ 1:31 PM:

    very continuous, very hovey, very very good

    Natsumion January 27, 2009 @ 1:34 PM:

    This is my dream bike to ride in good english tweed.

    Michaelon January 27, 2009 @ 3:50 PM:

    Jack Daniel’s? Jameson please.

    Three cheers for Tour De Ville!

    sam, i’m guessing you’re American?

    Matt Son January 27, 2009 @ 7:12 PM:

    It was a jolly good show all round. And the cuppa at Tour de Ville was most welcome.

    Veronikaon January 27, 2009 @ 11:45 PM:

    Thank you Kind Edward VIII for bringing tweed from the country to the city!

    Hobo Kenon January 28, 2009 @ 12:17 AM:

    Divs !

    Takes one to know one.

    Makes you proud to be British….sort of. I can’t wholeheartedly recommend fixed gear bicycles, at least not if you live anywhere in the vicinity of a hill or god forbid, hills. Yes, I am aware that Desgrange thought gearing on bicycles suitable only for old women and invalids but Ol’ Henry never actually rode a bike much. He spent most of his time leaning out the side of his motor car shouting at the Bros. Pelissiers et al to get a move on and stop shilly shallying. ” Be a man! suffer!” He was fond of saying and by gad that’s exactly what you will do if you take to riding fixed over anything other than the shortest, slightest incline. Those big ratios will ruin your knees.
    Nice tweeds. Some from here….

    Sam Jacobson January 28, 2009 @ 11:30 AM:

    Theodore Williams – if you meant me (Sam) and not the other Sam, then yes, I am American. I can’t answer for the other Sam.

    Beanon January 29, 2009 @ 12:26 AM:

    Michael: You mean Maker’s, please.

    Spenceron January 29, 2009 @ 12:41 AM:

    Puh-huh-huh-lease. Booker’s, or Knob Creek, or Blantons, thankyouverymuch.

    Or, if you’re on the other side of the Atlantic, Jack Daniels. Mainly because it seems to be the closest thing to good bourbon they serve. I say this based on an extremely limited and unscientific sampling.

    Bourbon and bicycles, a fine combo. Add to that tweed, because it looks pretty sharp.

    shuberon January 30, 2009 @ 11:52 AM:

    One word: sexy.

    jenelon January 30, 2009 @ 7:32 PM:

    ooooooh! (british) men, (in their) tweeds and (esp. on their) bikes… Luv it!!

    Still in the hunt for that perfect broken-in leather messenger bag thou..:(

    Joshon January 31, 2009 @ 2:21 PM:

    Oh dear.

    Michelleon February 3, 2009 @ 6:13 AM:

    How cool is this, and how did I miss it! Tweed on bikes is a great mix and one that really should become law.

    Maybe I’ll stand as an Independent for the Tweed party in the next election…

    Arthur Scargillon February 3, 2009 @ 3:01 PM:

    What a group of twats.
    Cycle through North Manchester you bunch of buffoons.

    (what is the collective name for a group of twats -a Twatteria?)

    pink bike rideron March 1, 2009 @ 7:47 PM:

    Where can I get the wicker hamper that straps to the front of your bike…a wee smaller than a steamer trunk, but not by much. Can girls join?

    Peteron May 15, 2009 @ 4:24 AM:

    Wonderful !! Looks to be great fun.
    Sadly enough, I know of no such event over here in Germany . Looking always for a nice opportunity to wear my good Norfolk jacket .
    Carry on lads ! and ladies , of course.
