Riders donning their best tweed cycle along London streets for annual event

Riders donned their finest tweed and most stylish attire as the annual Tweed Run cycling event returned to the streets of London.

Organised by creative lifestyle company Bourne & Hollingsworth, the event, which started in 2009, has continued to draw in crowds.

The sold-out cycle will take participants past famous landmarks including Parliament, the British Museum and St Paul’s Cathedral.

What distinguishes this bike ride from others is the fashionable tweed outfits donned by participants and this year was not short of stylish clothing.

One cyclist appeared to be head and shoulders above fellow participants as he rode a penny-farthing while dressed in bright orange knee-high socks and a tweed blazer and trousers.

A cyclist riding beside him sported a green check blazer with matching trousers, as well as mustard-coloured shoes.

Participants will also be treated to tea and lunch during the ride, which usually ends with “a bit of a jolly knees-up”, according to organisers.
