This is the first of four emails that we will send out to you each Friday until the Ride. The intention of these emails is to update all riders on updates and changes to your Tweed Ride.
First off, please note the Latest News updates on the Tweed Ride website. These posts are added every three days or so and will provide you information on contests, offers, and news in general.
The Route is shrouded in mystery, but never fear, all will be revealed in a timely manner! But note that this year’s Ride will begin at St Ann’s Academy, with check-in beginning at 11 o’clock in the morning. The traditional Tweed Ride Group Photograph will be taken at 11:45. We cry “Tally Ho!” and set off promptly at noon. The total riding time, with a slight pause for contest judging at the venerable W&J Wilson on Government Street, will be approximately seventy-five minutes.
Something we wish to stress this year is the end of the ride, which is not a pub, but a picnic in the park – a sprawling, beautifully located picnic. It is up to you to populate that landscape with bursting hampers filled with delectables, colourful blankets (hopefully with a smart tartan!), teacups – let your imagination be your guide! Tea will be provided, courtesy of Murchies. As in years past, we encourage everyone to bring their own teacups.
To that end, Chorizo & Co. on Fort Street is offering the sale of picnic hampers made especially for the Ride. If you wish to order one for you and yours, contact the Shop prior to Wednesday, 25th of September at 250-590-6393. Please have a look at our Latest News Post for more information on this!
There are still tickets for sale, so please spread the word!
If you have any questions, always feel free to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
