Winnipeg Tweed Ride 2012

How does one describe the Tweed Ride? Well, in a nutshell, it's a group of people dressed up in old-timey finery, taking a leisurely group bicycle ride, and embracing the style and spirit of a bygone era.

The Winnipeg Tweed Ride is an annual event that takes participants on a scenic route from the Pavillion at Assiniboine Park to the historic Danalvert museum (with a brief stop for photos on the steps of the Legislative Building.)

It's really quite civilized, as you can see. Following the ride, we had a picnic lunch on the lawn at Danalvert. Croquet was available, for those so inclined.

The 2012 Winnipeg Tweed Ride was held on September 9th, in concurrence with Cyclovia/Many Fest. I am already planning my outfit for next year's ride!
