The Herringbone: Burlington's Own Tweed Run - Saturday, Oct 22nd 2011


Saturday, October 22 · 10:00am - 2:00pm

Starting at Maglianero, ride leaves at 11 am.

More Info
Join us one and all for a leisurely tour of our Queen City. For those unfamiliar, a tweed ride is social and inclusive, slow paced and polite, and of course, involves wool and libations (lycra free please). The older the bike, the better, but no worries if you have more than three speeds, you are still welcome. Starting at Maglianero for coffee, continuing on a route that will lead us through many of Burlington's historic places, stopping along the way for events such bicycle poetry and prose readings, music, portraits, silly games, afternoon tea, and ending for fish and chips and pints downtown. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed lass and lads, best mustache, as well as other manifestations of the tweed spirit.

No wool in the closet? Grandpa's suit jacket smell too much like mothballs? Never fear! Visit these sites for some fashion inspiration. Or stay tuned for fashion advice to follow. (check out the dress code section)
