melbourne tweed ride
On Sunday me, John and a friend went on the Melbourne Tweed Ride. I have wanted to do this for such a long time, and I was chuffed that it was finally happening. Being unsure of the weather, I went for the vintage dress option rather than tweed, and, while that suited the elements – pretty cold morning, nicely warm lunchtime, very hot afternoon – typical, Melbourne! – I must admit I do wish I had suited up in tweed too! As in my case the wearing of a bike helmet renders good hair impossible, I simply enjoyed the ride, and photographed the amazing turn outs of my fellow tweed riders!
It was a pretty good feeling to be riding along, at a leisurely pace, with such a group of great bikes and dapper types. I can't wait for the next one! I have some far more tweedy outfits in mind ;)
