Sydney Tweed Ride 2013

The Sydney Tweed Ride was started in 2009. After seeing how stylish the London Tweed Run held earlier in the year looked it was decided that Sydney needed an equally oustanding event. Since then the numbers of riders have continued to increase and has led to a dedicated band of tweed enthusiasts who eagerly await the annual ride.See More
