THEY were all dressed up in their best Harris Tweed as these cyclists took to the streets of Glasgow.

Yesterday's second Harris Tweed Ride, billed as a 'soiree for dapper gents and gentile ladies' attracted media interest from as far away as Korea, Spain, Holland and Canada.

The event saw costumed cyclists ride around some of the city's best known haunts.

The Tweed Ride phenomenon started in London in 2008 and there are now more than 20 similar events worldwide.

Glasgow's ride, in association with The Harris Tweed Authority, followed a 'Victorian Path', passing some of the city's finest architecture, including The People's Palace, Kelvingrove and Blysthwood Square as well as some of its best-known hostelries.

Lorna Macaulay, Chief Executive of The Harris Tweed Authority, said: "The Tweed Rides have become a world-wide phenomenon and are a great way of expanding interest in the fabric and its heritage.

"They are very stylish events which bring together the tradition of Harris Tweed with modern style."
