over 400 cyclists in london gathered on april 10th for their 2nd annual tweed run. the concept of a tweed run is to dress up in the turn of the century “tweed wear”, ride your bikes around and bask in the nostalgia of what life and styles were like a decade ago.
the ride was 12 miles throughout the city, and included a break for tea in the middle, accompanied by a three string orchestra, and prizes for best styles. the event ended up raising about $1,500 for bikes4africa, an organization that helps send bikes to africa for schoolchildren to commute on!
additional photos can be found on their flickr stream here.
