After creating the Loinen-bike I was eager to hear the feedback about the behavior of the bike, so when we heard about the Winter Tweed Run 2013 we were on it. A perfect happening for a longer maiden-voyage.
As life usually goes, that weekend was fully booked: a sledge-race, dining, sauna-action and a punk-gig so when sunday morning rose I felt a bit hazy...Like almost puking-hazy.
But as promised I bit the bullet and off we went with a bit of an I-Have-Nothing-To-Wear -argument but we made it on time.The sun was shining and people looked amazing in their clothes. Although I wasn´t so tweedy, my companion had nailed it perfectly.
The Tweed Run started from pictoresque Senaatintori-square, the first pit-stop was at Cafe Regatta and final goal was at Road Weirdoes amusement-park.
There were partisipants from St Petersburg, Tallin, and Stockholm.
Here´s a St Petersburg TweedRun-poster. Check out their FB:

We agreed to bike to Cafe Regatta and the feel out if we could make it to the end. After a while our strength was wearing out so it was time to head back. All in all a 30 kms trip with a kustom Monark and the Loinen-bike, so not bad at all.
