What is it?
Watch dapper cyclists dressed in tweed suits, plus fours, bow ties, and jaunty flat caps as this year’s Tweed Run heads through central London on 17th May.
The quirky annual event has been running since 2009 and is very popular with the well-heeled young ladies and gentlemen of London. The cyclists will gather in central London and then make their way around some of the best-loved landmarks and hidden gems of the city, finishing in Clerkenwell for a good old-fashioned knees-up. In true refined style, the pedalling masses stop along the route to take tea and indulge in a picnic.
The cyclists taking part in the Tweed Run will be competing for the coveted titles of Best Vintage Bicycle, Best Dressed Bicycle and Best Moustache. The ride is about 12 miles long and raises money for the London Cycling Campaign. The London Cycling Campaign is a charity that aims to transform London into a healthier, cleaner and happier place to live; where cycling is a choice for any Londoner who wants to ride the streets conveniently and without fear.
