We're back! After a two-year hiatus the wheels are in motion once again for the 2022 Tweed Ride. Mark your calendars for August 7th at Willows Beach, polish your vintage bicycle, and open your wardrobe to select your finest and tweediest outfit. We can't wait to see you again this summer to shout Tally Ho!
When: August 7th, 2022 at 11:00 (ride to begin at noon)
Where: Willows Beach
Get your tickets!
Tickets are $15 each (children 12 and under are free) and can be purchased through Eventbrite.
NOTE: The date was originally booked for late July; however due to a clerical error out of our control it had to be moved to August. Please check that you have the right date, as it would be most unfortunate to show up looking great, only to find no one to greet you!
Just under 10 kms, our route will start at Willows, meander along leafy residential streets, peek out at the ocean from Beach Drive, take some unique shortcuts and paths, and end back at Willows beach in time for high tea.
Make sure to pack:
- A fabulous vintage outfit
- Your favourite bicycle from any era
- A picnic, tea cups and blanket
- Friends and family
- Your helmet
- Sunscreen and hats
