A lovely reader wrote about the Sydney Tweed Run that was held a couple of weeks ago.
You may recall my post about the London Tweed Run and how it was a pity that we didn’t do something like that here – well, our Northern cousins have beat us to it, and you can see by the pics that the turnout in Sydney was nothing short of impressive. I was also pleased to see large numbers of ladies attending, at least one of whom looks to be wearing a corset!
I hope they don’t mind, but I’ve borrowed these images from Flickr’s pool and in lieu of individual crediting, each file name declares it’s source.
We can’t be shown up like this – someone needs to organise a similar event in Melbourne! In the meantime, Pete left this comment on the London Tweed Run post:
I have scheduled a Lether Saddle Tour (for old bikes, blokes and sheilas) with my touring club on Sun 19th July. It is not in Melbourne unfortunately, but more a country tour in the style of the Cyclist’s Special 1955.
We will be doing a 60km tour from Geelong out on the Bellarine peninsula. Any classic cyclists interested in this, riding old bikes and old clothes, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
