The Tweed Run is a group bicycle event, where cyclists are encouraged to dress in traditional British cycling attire – particularly tweed plus four suits – and ride vintage bicycles. The concept was initiated in London in 2009 and has since spread to other cosmopolitan metropolises, including Tokyo and New York.
Last year Moscow hosted their first Tweed Run, photographer Cyril Kolobyanin captured these images of the event:
“The aura of the 1930s and 1940s was recreated with a twist of elegance. The Sokolniki Park became a Mecca of style and sport, with crowds of cyclists dressed to the nines.”
