Get ready for a photo-heavy post! The long awaited Tweed Ride Victoria took place this past weekend. Even with a last minute date switch from Saturday to Sunday due to an iffy forecast, people came out in droves. I heard it estimated that there were nearly 200 of us riding. Not bad at all for the first such event in our fair city!
Victorians made a great showing of it. I was so impressed with the thought and care people put into dressing for the occasion. I can be counted on to be a little over dressed for any occasion but this time I think I found my tribe. I so wish I had captured better photos. I'm not quite coordinated enough to ride and shoot well!
And it wasn't just the clothing... I've heard this said about other tweed rides and found it to be true. They seem to bring out a certain graciousness in people. It was so nice to ride along making conversation with some of the kindest people I've met anywhere.
I'm thrilled to learn there are plans in the works to hold another ride in the Autumn. I'm dreaming up outfits already!
