As you may know, a Tweed Ride is a bike ride where a group of cyclists dress in historic and vintage attire. It is told that the tradition began in London in the 90s with riders dressing in classic British winter attire and riding through the streets of London. Similar events are now held all around the world.
We assembled at the cannons beside Restaurant Piper's on Wendouree Lake.
Despite forecast, it was a glorious autumnal climate with sunshine but suitable temperature for tweed clothes in the morning.
Six Bromptons made the lineup and a Penny Farthing joined.
The ride began at 11:15 am after a short safety briefing.
It was a big ride!
A ride finished at City Hall. They are award winners for best dressed.
Please enjoy the movie. (equipment: Gopro Hero 7 Black)
