The infamous Glamour Ride will glide across town to prove you don't need lycra to ride a bike. Get "glammed up" and enjoy a lazy afternoon's ride showing off to all we meet. Wear your own interpretation of glamour and join us on our infamous fun ride. Previous years have seen tuxedos, tutus, decorated bikes, Wonder Woman and much, much more.
- Dress code: The most glamorous outfit you have.
- Bike to bring: The most glamorous one you have.
- Attitude to bring: The most glamorous you can be.
Meet in Mile End Park E3, south of the Green Bridge, just east of Solebay Street (location map). We're going on an easy ride heading for the Embankment and returning to Mile End.

The Glamour Ride Story
"Who says cycling is all lycra, sweat and bad hair days? Not us! Dress according to your own definition of glamour, decorate either yourself or your bike or both - get geared up!"
From its humble beginnings in September 2005, the Glamour Ride has reached infamous status. The brainchild of Leigh and organised by Tower Hamlets Wheelers, the ride aims to prove you don't need to wear lycra to ride a bicycle. With diverse interpretations of "glamour" by the participants this aim has always been achieved!
