As we did last year, this year’s Ride will be a fund-raising event for Bicycles for Humanity , our local action group, to assist in their effort to send a container-load of bikes to Namibia.
Here is their site for more detailed information about their most worthy endevours - http://www.bicycles-for-humanity.org/Victoria/index.php

 

Tweed Rides are a worldwide phenomena, started in London in the fall of 2009 as The Tweed Run London. The organizers thought that it would be fun to have a slower-paced “cosmopolitan ride with a bit style”. So they dressed in tweeds, rode their bikes through London streets and raised money for bicycles for Bicycles for Humanity.

What is Tweed Ride Victoria?

It is a group bicycle ride through the centre of Victoria, in which the cyclists are encouraged to dress in classic tweed or any smart looking outfit. Any effort made to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is also always appreciated. Any and all bicycles are acceptable on the Tweed Ride.

 

Below is what it looked like the second time they did it in London in the Spring of 2010.

 

 

Since then Tweed Rides have gone viral and swept the world. They now exist from Tokyo to Finland. This is the gorgeous Washington, DC ride in the Fall of 2010.

 

 

But wait, you say, what about Our Very Own Victoria? Never fear! Here is a video from last year’s ride
