Hundreds of dapper cyclists pedalled through the streets of London on Saturday (May 6) for the annual Tweed Run.
Boasting to be “the most sartorially impeccable event ever to take place on two wheels”, the event returned to the capital’s historic streets for the ninth year, beginning and ending at Clerkenwell, and taking in stunning sights including those in Westminster over its 12 mile course.
The sharply dressed cyclists donned their finest attire, with participants wearing plus-fours, Cordings tweed jackets and bow ties. Other participants were seen sporting Merino wool team jerseys, silk cravats and flat caps.
Cycles in used in the event, organised by creative lifestyle company Bourne & Hollingsworth, ranged from Penny-farthings to customised vintage two-wheelers and contemporary pedal-powered contraptions.
Prizes were handed out at the end of the event, with awards for best-dressed man and woman, smartest bicycle and finest moustache all up for grabs.
Organiser say nearly 1,000 people participated in the event.
Tweed Runs also take place in Greece and New York.
