Tweed Run took place in Saint Petersburg

On September 22, all fashion-followers gathered on the Palace Square, Saint Petersburg, to participate in the famous Tweed Run.

Initially, the Tweed Run is a group bicycle ride through the centre of London, in which the cyclists are expected to dress in traditional British cycling attire, particularly tweed plus four suits. Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated.

The first Tweed Run was held on the 24th of January 2009. Then various tweed rides have since been held in Boston, Chicago, Texas, New York, Helsinki, Paris, Riga, São Paulo, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Berlin, Vienna and finally in Saint Petersburg.
