Snapshots of the Harris Tweed Ride – Glasgow 2013
The Harris Tweed Ride is starting to become an annual event for me and some of my friends from Glasgow. It is a lovely way to catch up and have a jolly fun day out on bicycles. It particularly helps if the sun is shining. This year it was a scorcher – it was so incredibly sunny in Glasgow that people were trying to resist peeling off their tweed!
Most of them resisted – at least at first and as you can see in the video below they looked splendid. The organisers did a brilliant job once again of ensuring that we visited some brilliant venues around town – including a quick trip on the Tall Ship – it really was quite a day. By the time we were back at the Blythswood Hotel sipping gin cocktails I was slightly sleepy – even if it is the most relaxed group bike ride I have ever been on.
I tried to capture the day a little in pictures and film snaps. So I mashed them together in the short film above – it is all shot on a hand held compact camera – so forgive the shakiness – I was also on a bicycle. But I hope it gives you a wee taste of the fun day out I had on the Tweed Ride.
You can check out more images of the day here.
On reflection it is a little similar to one I posted last year (see below). Perhaps next year I should try to be a little more imaginative with my filming!
