Long socks set to rid the world of lycra leggings

Originally uploaded by I'm Roxy dammit
While Auckland battles 98% humidity the members of Tweed Bicycle Club in London have been facing quite a different challenge - how to keep riding during the chilly London winter without resorting to lycra leggings. The answer is of course long socks and tweed plus-fours.

Their recent 'Tweed Run' showcased some glorious examples, and should be the perfect inspiration for all of the wheelmen and ladymembers planning to take part in march's Gentlemens Ride.

Many thanks to I'm Roxy dammit for sharing her pics.

Glendowie Bicycle Chic up for grabs

After a fair bit of pressure from Mrs Treasurer (on left), Mrs Chairman (on right) & Rachel of Takapuna (absent from photo) we are relieved to announce that our club t-shirts are now available for the ladies. At this stage we have only done a yellow version. But what a flattering yellow it is to be sure.  

If you'd like to win one, just leave a comment with a caption for the above photo (and your email address if you're really serious). Given we get about 2 comments a month, even something mildly amusing should be in with a chance for best caption. We'll do the draw next week sometime.
