We had such fun on our first Tweed Ride in Manchester that we’re champing at the bit to relive the experience, and hopefully encourage a few more pedalers with panache to join us!
Our resident fashionistas tell us that tweed is a key trend for Autumn/Winter 2011, but don’t worry if you don’t have any – it’s more about the attitude than the attire! We like to think “urbane” rather than “urban”. As long as you’re partial to a sedate and sociable bicycle ride with a few stop-offs for refuelling, you’ll be just fine and dandy! We’re planning the next Tweed Ride for before the clocks turn wintry, on Saturday 29 October, starting from outside Whitworth Art Gallery at 2pm.
The monthly Wheelers’ Brunch gathering, when cyclists “who enjoy their bike as a mode of transport in everyday clothes” share snacks and chats, will be the same day from noon until 1.30/2pm in the Whitworth Cafe, so you could even push the boat out and join us for both!
