The Great Southern chapter of the WAHCC is assisting the City of Albany with a vintage festival that includes a static display and a Tweed styled event. Muster at The Albany Museum prior to 12 midday for a gentle ride of approximately 2kms. Anybody on a any bicycle is welcome but all are encouraged to wear vintage clothing in keeping with the minimum-exertion, maximum-elegance ethos of Tweed Rides the world over.
Riders are encouraged to stay on at the Vancouver Street Festival to enjoy the fabulous array of food, wine, local artisan market stalls. Or a game of bocce!.
The Ride is open to everyone however minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an parent or guardian.
Cyclists generally dress in traditional British cycling attire, particularly tweed. If you don’t have a vintage steed and a wardrobe full of tweeds, worry not – we’re a relaxed bunch and whilst we admire and appreciate a bit of effort, our motto is: “it’s more about attitude than the attire”! Suits, frocks, waist jackets, berets and boaters, scarves, braces and bow ties are all encouraged. Pleats are back! (again)
Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Ride, but your classic vintage bicycle is especially welcome. Bike racking will be available at the Festival.
