Submit your Tweed Photos for a Prize!

The Tweed Ride is hastily approaching (next Saturday, Oct. 15) and if you’re interested in the most stylish and civilized ride Toronto has seen in decades, you need to register to ride.  Online registration closes on Wed, Oct. 12.

Your $15 registration fee gets you:

  • Official participation in Toronto’s first annual Tweed Ride
  • High Tea (bring your own teacup)
  • Swag Bag
  • A Swinging After-Party at Dovercourt House.

People are putting together their Tweed outfits (or outfits inspired by a bygone era), and we want to see photos of what you are planning!

In fact, we want to see your outfits so much (and have your outfits inspire others), that we’re having a photo contest (which also closes on Wed. Oct. 12)…. all you need to do is “tweet” your photo to our @TweedRideTO twitter account, or email them to info@bikingtoronto.com and you’re entered!

Prizes! The winner of the photo contest will win a Basil Memories Basket and a Giro Bike Helmet, courtesy of the Urbane Cyclist Co-op.

Here’s a few photos to get you started…. submit a photo to win!

Yvonne Bambrick, Mike Brcic, Kristen Corbet, David Miller, Tanya Smith, Casie Stewart and Ryan Smith

 

This is me, trying out some tweedy clothes.  Yes, I don’t usually have a beard… the things I do/grow for Tweed! haha.
