Yes I know that I resemble a sort of be-tweeded caped crusader! What Larks! Bless all your little tweedy hearts and please join me next year as I'm planning the outfit already. Are you Chap enough for the Tweed Run?

The Tweed Run is a quirky event where participants don their finest tweeds and brogues and cycle through London, stopping along the way to have tea and picnics ending with a good old fashioned ‘Knees-up!’ in the afternoon.

The first Tweed Run began in 2009 with 300 tweed clad cyclists gathered at the top of London’s Saville row on a chilly February morning.
