The Tweed Run was invented in the 90´s and enthusiastically adopted by urban hipsters everywhere in the last few years. The objective is a leisurely cycle outing whilst dressed in period appropriate clothing - namely plus fours. Any pastime that eschews lycra is OK in my book.
This event combines all things awesome - vintage clothing, retro bikes, and conviviality so it´s easy to see why they´re popular. In London entries are limited to 500 and they hold an auction.
And I finally found out about something in advance. That never happens.
So FYI - The third annual Tweed Ride Madrid is scheduled for June 9. There´s a ride, picnic, photo op, swing dance demo and mustache contest planned.
