You might have heard about the Tweed Rides that have been popping up across the world, provding lovers of cycling and of elegant tweed sportswear the opportunity to combine these interests and meet others while enjoying the great outdoors.
Canberra has its own Tweed Ride, which is really a lot of fun to be involved with.
For those who enjoy a stroll rather than a cycle, we are now holding the first Canberra Tweed Walk on Sunday 11 April.
This is a free event, simnply for the pleasure of enjoying walking in Canberra and elegant but practical clothing. If you enjoy a bit of healthy exercise but feel a tad less than glamorous pulling on nasty trackpants, this is an event for you.
The walk will start around 1.30 pm, meeting at Reid Park, on the shore of Lake Burley Griffin directly opposite the end of ANZAC Parade. We will stop for a picnic afternoon tea after a walk of 40 minutes or so.
The inaugural Tweed Walk will be a gentle paced stroll suitable for people at any fitness level. Kiddies, strollers, wheelchairs and scooters are all welcome. We intend to walk at a pace that allows for enjoyable conversation.
