For those of you not riding today, you will find us at the Roundhouse at Bayview Properties. The corner of Sitkum Road and Esquimalt Road in Songhees.
“Mad Dogs and Englishmen stay out in the midday sun”
…but Tweed Riders don’t need to ride in strong winds and heavy rains.
The weather has actually advanced from yesterday’s predictions and is now set to get worse, not better, as the day progresses into the Official Ride start time of Noon.
That being the case (and after standing in the rain for 5 minutes and getting soaked through my Tweeds you will discover why) we are transmuting the Lead of this weather into the Gold of a Tweed Rally at the Roundhouse.
Riders have a choice –
Mad Dogs and Englishmen may meet with Simon Sobolewski at 11:45 at St. Ann’s and we will set off on a drastically curtailed Ride (St. Ann’s then over the Blue Bridge then directly to the Roundhouse) or:
Tweed Rider (and the Sane) may make their own way to the Roundhouse via automobile, Public transit, bicycle or on foot, to join us at the Roundhouse to picnic and hot tea indoors in a dry and convivial atmosphere, at 12:30. Spread your blankets, open your hampers, fill your cups, and join us in the semi, hemi, demi, al fresco of the handsome Roundhouse Car Shop.
The choice is entirely your, dear Riders….
Just a note – there are no washrooms in the building, but the Lawn Bowling have kindly offered their support and are welcoming Tweed Riders to avail themselves of the Club’s water closets.
Hope to see you at the Roundhouse – Lord Knows we will need a cuppa by then…..
Libby Gibson and Simon Sobolewksi
