Stylish Folks with Stylish Spokes

Tweed Ride Victoria is a group bicycle ride – not a race, mind you – winding through various neighbourhoods in fair Victoria, British Columbia. Cyclists dress in traditional attire, such as tweed plus four suits and vintage dresses. Any bicycle is acceptable in the Tweed Ride, but classic bicycles are encouraged to better recreate the spirit of a bygone era. Our event is part of a worldwide Tweed Ride movement, started by cyclists in Britain eager for a slower-paced “metropolitan ride with a bit of style.”


A Jolly Ramble & a Spot of Tea

Our 9.5 km cycling route winds through the leafy streets of Oak Bay, starting at Willows Beach. As no jaunt is complete without refreshment, the Tweed Ride concludes with a splendid tea and picnic. Bring your wicker picnic baskets, tartan blankets, tea cups and saucers, croquet sets and gramophones if you have them, to enjoy a jolly good afternoon with friends.
