I've decided to go to tweed this year but I didn't want to turn up on a modern road bike, nor did I want to spend a lot of money finding a retro bike at the LBS. After some street searching I was…Continue

I'll be out of town from July 23 - so any date before that suits me!

Wouldn't want to miss this for the world! If you get a choice of dates, I would love it to be before June 16 or after July 18... I have a conference/holiday.

This is to be my first Tweed, but I am in Germany riding the Rhine in June. I really want to have an outing on my brompton!

I hope to join you this year on my renovated Peugeot. My daughter and granddaughter also would like to give it a go.

Hey Susan,

Is there a date yet?


Comment by Common Old Garrwain on July 10, 2012 at 7:27pm


I was wondering who would break the silence!

Last year's was on the 31st, so there's still some of the coldest month left.

Tweed people might be interested in The Manly Retro Ride  coming up on Sunday 23rd September. A poster with map and more details will be out soon and I will put it up here. The ride was a lot of fun last year (it's first), and in combination with the Bike Life Festival will be even better this time.

Info also here and see my comment under the ride discussion here for bicyclists wanting to come over by ferry.

Phew! its all happening for classic and old time bike stuff.

I'm just mentioning Omar's recent discussion topic here  as I missed it last week and no doubt others did too. Please get behind this, at least by adding comments to keep the discussion alive on SC's front page. See you all on October 25th!

For anyone who has not read Jim Fitzpatrick's remarkable book, copies are still available although it was published way back in the 80s -
