The Tweed Run, established in 2009, is a 'metropolitan bike ride with a bit of style' - this year the 10 mile bike ride round London takes place on 9th April at 11am in Central London taking in famous sites (Big Ben, Buckingham Palace etc), stopping for tea, and ending up out in Shoreditch for a 'knees-up'.
But this is a bike ride with a difference: All participants are encouraged to wear their best tweed!! Hurrah!
Sadly for the sporty-tweedy types, registration is now full - but you can cheer yourself up with a bit of retail therapy from the Tweed Run Webshop, 'The Gentleman Cyclist Outfitter'.
