This weekend saw the annual Tweed Run begin on Marylebone High Street, the fifth year in a row the event has taken place.
Since its inception in 2009, the Tweed Run’s ‘metropolitan bike ride’ has cycled across London along the same route, with demand being so high that the event is now limited to 500 competitors.
Beginning the route on Marylebone’s very own Marylebone High Street, the cyclists are all expected to wear traditional attire, as well as making use of vintage bicycles for their trip across the capital. Making their way to Trafalgar Square, the cyclists arrived 2 hours after setting off from Marylebone High Street having passed along Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus and the Houses of Parliament and despite the occasional rain shower.
The Tweed Run has become so popular in London that there are now variations across the UK, as well as around in the World in locations such as Tokyo and New York.
