The Brompton bicycle race participants have a dress code to follow making this event especially fun to watch. The dress code is city-chic with the typical lycra sportswear not being permitted in this event. Many cyclists sported shirts, jackets, as well as ties or bow ties. There were also some skirts and dresses. Some cyclists really went out of their way to do themselves up and put on a great show. See photos below.
