Canberra Tweed Ride is a short bicycle cruise of about 15km through the Civic and Inner North areas, with stops at numerous cafes and pubs along the way. Expect a leisurely pace.
Tweed Ride has no agenda except the rejection of modern cycling “style”, to wit: carbon fibre, lycra, goretex and the like. Cyclists are encouraged to dress in their finest vintage garb, if only to prevent the onset of chill from inclement weather. Prizes will be awarded for best outfit, bike and facial hair.
The tour meets at the Gorman House Markets near the coffee van at 11.30am for departure at 12 noon. A map of the route is available on Bikely: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Canberra-Tweed-Ride-2009
