Limited Edition Pashley Charity Bike for the Tweed Run 2011

I am ever so excited this year to be participating in my very first Tweed Run, along side dear friends Fleur and Jen. I love cycling and I can’t think of a more enjoyable afternoon in London. You can read all about Fleur’s previous adventures here.

This year the Tweed Run has partnered with Pashley bikes to create a one off Tweed Run Clubman bike to be auctioned to the highest bidder. The only one in existence, it is perfect for city cycling and for Tweed Run adventures. Ideally suited for both ladies and gents, the Clubman offers the discerning cyclist a superior urban ride.

As it is for the Tweed Run, Pashley have gone all out and have come up
with some special Tweed Touches! Tweed Run specs include:

* Black mainframe with ivory head-tube and seat-tube banding.
* Chromed fork blades
* Gold head-tube lug lining – all hand gilded
* Special dated ‘Tweed Run London 2011’ down-tube and seat-tube graphics
* 21ス” frame

Hand made in the Pashley factory in Stratford upon Avon, this is really a one off.

To make sure the winner is able to fully enjoy their new bicycle righ away, the Tweed Run is pleased to offer the successful bidder two Tweed Run London places. (Now fully sold out)

100% of proceeds from this auction will be donated to Bikes4Africa, a Rotary International of Britain and Ireland project helping people to change their lives through education. Many African children live in remote communities, a long way from their nearest school. Without reliable, affordable, motorised transport the only way these children  can get to school is to walk.  In searing heat, their journey to education on foot is a daily epic mission.  Having a bicycle makes a world of difference for these children, and for their families and communities too.

The auction is running on eBay, with an ending time of 12:45, 07 Apr, 2011.

Bidding has started to get a move on!
