Tweed Ride YYC

This is the spot for Calgary’s Tweed Ride, where bicyclists of all levels are encouraged to dress in tweed and explore the city in a leisurely fashion.

The Tweed Ride is a casual, ~10-15km ride around Calgary’s inner city, where participants are encouraged to dress in tweed or vintage on Victoria Day in May. The 5th Annual Tweed Ride is taking place on May 23, 2016, and we invite all to take in this most elegant of bicycle rides in the fair city of Calgary.

All proceeds raised from this years ride will once again go to support the efforts of Bicycles for Humanity. You may pre-register for the ride here, and you have the option to make a donation if you so desire. You will also be able to register and/or donate on the day of the ride, but be sure to show up early for registration and tea. Ride details can be found here.
