Planning a Toronto Tweed Ride

Tweed Rides are getting immensely popular around the world… and if you haven’t heard of them before – here’s a description of London’s “Tweed Run” from wikipedia:

“The Tweed Run is a group bicycle ride through the centre of London, in which the cyclists are expected to dress in traditional British cycling attire, particularly tweed plus four suits. Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated”

There’s been some talk of a Toronto Tweed Ride in the past… but the organization has not really happened, so we thought we’d help organize one by bringing together people who are interested and go from there.

We’ve established a Facebook Page that you can “like” if you’re interested in helping plan one… or merely want to participate when it happens.

We are in the beginning stages now… we still need to decide the when, where, how… not to mention tweed resources in Toronto… but enough people are interested that this will happen sooner or later.

Like the Toronto Tweed Ride on Facebook!

Possible slogans:

  • Tweed is the new neon spandex
  • Yeah, it’s cool, bow ties are cool.
  • Party like it’s 1899.
  • I say, dear chap, where did you get that absolutely smashing velocipede?

For some visual interest… here are some promotional graphics from Tweed Rides from other cities!

[also, if you can spot the Doctor Who reference in this post, you shall receive geek points! yay!]
