The Windsor Tweed Ride takes over the streets of Windsor again this spring.
Cyclists, dressed in their finest tweeds and old-time clothes, will leisurely take in some the city’s finest landmarks on Saturday May 10th for the forth Windsor Tweed Ride.
The ride gets started across from the City Cyclery located at 553 Lincoln Road in Old Walkerville, and from there, heads along the riverfront bike paths, up Ouellette Avenue for a lunch break in the beer garden at Rino’s Kitchen and Ale Hose and culminating with a shindig outside of The Willistead Restaurant with pints of Walkerville Brewery’s finest, live swing and jazz from Hugh Leal and The Gaiety Three, posh variations on classic English dishes and mush revelry.
Tweed Rides are a worldwide phenomenon, started in London in the fall of 2009 as “Tweed Run London.” The inaugural Windsor Tweed Ride, in October 2012.
Riders will have the opportunity to win a new bicycle from Bobbin Bicycles of England, courtesy of City Cyclery. Additional prizes will be awarded in several categories, including Best Dressed Gent, Finest Dressed Lady, and Best Bicycle.
