Charity Auction: One-off Tweed Run Bicycle

Bid for a unique Tweed Run Bicycle (with Pashley accessories and 2 Tweed Run tickets)! In order to celebrate the 5th Birthday of the Tweed Run, Pashley Cycles, who have been supporting the ride since its inception, are proud to offer a very special one-off Pashley bike. Styled around our classic ladies Princess with a touch of lace pattern on the seat tube and fork top (yes, it has its own garter!), this subtle unique ladies bike echoes the Tweed Run sentiment of reserved grace with the robust quality typical of Pashley bicycles. Only one bicycle of this type (with 20” frame) is being produced and comes with a Pashley Saddle Satchel and Basket Tote. Pashley are donating this bike to be auctioned to raise funds for the CTC; an historic and important charity who work tirelessly to advocate safe, sustainable and happy cycling.
