Etiquette

A Tweed Ride is, among other things, sartorially splendid cycling.  This is the time to ride out in your most dapper fall finery.  Tweed suits, woolen skirts, a vintage varsity sweater, bow ties, and brogues are just a few of the options.  You simply cannot be too well dressed.  For more ideas, see our page on Attire.

Do equip yourself with appropriate outerwear.  Our ride is in November, so be sure to watch the weather, and don a sturdy mackintosh or great coat and gloves, as the case may be.

The whole family is welcome to join the fun.  Pets, and children who need assistance keeping the pace, must stay with their parents.  This is a pleasure ride, not a race; the pace is leisurely, and several long stops for refreshment are built into the day.  Our ride will likely be over before it is fully dark, but do feel free to equip you bicycle with lights.  While on the subject of safety, though this is a fashionable affair, please do not hesitated wear a helmet if you wish.
