TORONTO TWEED RIDE WRAP UP

It was an amazing turnout for the 1st Toronto Tweed ride.


The drizzle and 60 km/h wind gusts made traversing the iconic TTC streetcar tracks a menace,

however we kept calm and carried on.

The ride itself was the climax to weeks of planning outfits, raiding value village and grandparents closets for vintage treasures and teacups,



polishing shoes and chrome parts and building teams and new friendships across Toronto’s cycling community.




I was proud to see a such a positive gathering of smiles and moustaches.




As a benefit for Bikes without Borders the Tweed Ride raised over $10,000.00 which will go toward building up the global cycling community



and linking their common needs to ours. Hip Hip Hooray!




I look forward to being part of the next ride and hope to see more people join.
