The Tweed Run 2019


The Tweed Run returns to Spetses in October for a 6th year (October 11th -13th 2019).

The event initially began in London in 2009 and reached Greece in 2014 within the context of the celebrations that were planned for the 100 year anniversary of the Poseidonion Grand Hotel. Since then, the Tweed Run has become an annual occurrence with a large number of participants returning year after year to enjoy the most vintage cycling experience there is. The aristocratic character of Spetses makes it the ideal location for such an event, echoing the British style and elegance of another era, with the cyclists turning heads with their vintage dress and especially, what else but good old tweed. With the Poseidonion Square as the main starting point and the Argosaronic in the background, participants will enjoy a cycling ride through the Spetsian scenery, passing the island’s best beauty spots. 

A picnic in the countryside and a cycling skills competition, a beauty pageant for the best-dressed entries and the “Concours d’Elégance” in which the best bikes are awarded, are sure to offer unforgettable moments again this year. The atmospheric three day event will end with the usual party in the lobby of the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, with the group Lindy Hop taking the guests back to the days of swing in an evening of music and dance. Shiny polished bikes, stylish, well-dressed appearances, a vibrant mood and retro ambience will bring the well known English elegance to the Spetses of today.

The Tweed Run takes place again this year with the kind support of the Hellenic Bicycle Museum. Registrations have already begun! Tweed Run A tradition which first began in London in 2009, the Tweed Run involves a group of cyclists dressing up in traditional vintage clothing and enjoying a bike ride through the streets of the English capital, stopping off for the proverbial cup of tea and picnics. The event was organised for the first time in Greece in 2014 on Spetses by the Poseidonion Grand Hotel as part of the 100 year anniversary celebration of the emblematic hotel. Since then, the event returns to the island of aromas every year, gaining more and more fans as it does so. Poseidonion Grand Hotel The imposing historic hotel first welcomed its guests on Spetses in the summer of 1914 as a result of its visionary benefactor, Sotirios Anargyros. Today, more than a century after opening its doors, it continues to be a symbol of hospitality that has remained faithful to its cosmopolitan past, with architecture reminiscent of iconic hotels in the French Riviera. It remains a majestic landmark on the island to this day, exuding a sense of elegance which has made it a contemporary myth.
