Tweed Rides are a worldwide phenomena, started in London in the fall of 2009 as “The Tweed Run London.” Promoted as a slower-paced “metropolitan ride with a bit style” they dressed up in tweeds, rode their bikes through London streets celebrating the bike and raising money for a good cause. This past year London registration sold out in seven minutes with more than 500 participants, celebrities, and the like, gracing the streets of London.
Tweed Ride Toronto is a charity fundraiser bicycle ride through downtown Toronto, in which the cyclists are encouraged to dress in classic tweed or any smart looking outfit. Any effort made to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is also appreciated. Any and all bicycles are acceptable.
Tweed, my dear friend, is more than a textile, oh yes, it’s a world of fashionable and historical intrigue. Register and be part of the coolest thing to hit Toronto in ages!
