Following the success of 2013’s fifth birthday ride, The Tweed Run has confirmed that it will again take to the streets of London on Saturday, May 17.
The Tweed Run is a spectacular social bicycle ride through London’s historic streets, with a prerequisite that all riders wear their best tweed 1920s and 30s cycling attire. Participants can expect a day of leisurely riding in the company of fellow ladies and gentlemen exceptionally dressed in plus-fours, Harris tweed jackets, merino wool team jerseys, silk cravats, bow ties and flat caps.
This year’s London route will begin at a beautiful and iconic Central London courtyard and will take the stylish cycler across a healthy handful of the city’s well-loved landmarks and hidden gems. The leisurely ride will include The Tweed Run’s traditional Tea Break and Picnic, which they are famous for - ending with a glass of bubbly and an early evening knees-up in a Clerkenwell locale.
£10 of each ticket sale is this year donated to the London Cycling Campaign, The Tweed Run’s designated charity.
When: Saturday, May 17
