The Olde Belfast Velo Jaunt - 31/07/11

The Olde Belfast Velo Jaunt is Belfast's first free jaunty bike ride inspired by London's 'Tweed Run'! Yesterday participants were invited to take part in a 14 mile round trip leisurely cycling from Custom House Square in the city centre along the shoreline up to Whiteabbey wearing fine dandy-esque outfits, stopping for a few hours to picnic in Hazelbank Park.

Though this style wasn't compulsory, gentlemen really put the effort in wearing vintage tweed jackets and suits complemented with cravats and bow-ties for a finished look. Bright Argyle and stripy patterned socks were also present to add a splash of colour! Ladies wore stylish silk scarves and cute straw boater hats with dresses and shorts.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon the event will hopefully run again soon due to its popularity!
