Brisbane Tweed Ride?

Postby mhilla02 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 8:43 pm

Hey Guys!

Now I've seen some hilarious tweed rides happening over in the UK and also in other cities most notably Sydney and through some research also Ipswich!

Basically my question is, is there a tweed ride that is associated with Brisbane? I see this as one event not to be missed!!! :D

What's a "tweed ride", a ride to the Tweed, a ride dressed in tweed, or a wide up a twee?

Not sure if this is what you are referring to but Wikipedia says "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.[1]"

Tweed rides are something similar but held a other centres around the world
