The Tweed RunOne of London's most eccentric bike rides - surpassed only by the World Naked Bike Ride - The Tweed Run returns for its ninth annual bike ride 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 in Clerkenwell and takes in some of the capital's finest landmarks and hidden gems. Pit stops along the way allow for a spot of tea in a fine London square and a picnic break in the park. Spectators and riders alike can enjoy a BBQ and Bourne and Hollingsworth cocktails at the finish line. The whole thing ends at a beautiful park for a drink and a bit of a knees up.
