The Tweed RunOne of London's most eccentric bike rides - surpassed only by the World Naked Bike Ride - The Tweed Run returns for its annual cycle through the city's landmarks this May. The quintessential bike ride requires participants to don their finest tweed attire and set off on a 12-mile scenic route that begins at a secret London location and takes in some of the capital's finest landmarks along the way. Between 750 and 1,000 cyclists, clad in tweed, cycle along Regent Street creating a spectacle so out of the ordinary that crowds form along the route. A pit stop along the way allows for a spot of tea in a fine London square and a picnic break in the park is like a concert and village fete rolled into one. The whole thing ends up with cocktails and a bit of a knees up at The Closing Ceremony when prizes are given for the best dressed participants, bikes and most marvellous moustache.
