Sydney Tweed Picnic 2014






Tweed Picnic at Centennial Park. This is the only Tweed event happening this year and is different to the previous years. We hope you all can make it and represent Sydney dapper cycling internationally. 

Meeting at the Moore Park Entrance to Centennial Park at 12.00pm. We will ride around the park to the Willow Tree Duck Pond near the road that exits to the Queens Park.

There are two casual meeting points if you wish to meet fellow riders beforehand. One is meeting at Wynard Station for 10.30am and the other is meeting outside Fisher Library - Sydney Uni at 11.00am (leaving 11.30).

What to bring: bicycle, helmet (your choice but Rangers will ticket you in Centennial park if you get caught), a picnic, blanket, and whatever else keeps you happy.

We look forward to a lovely dapper social affair, with mutual admiration of bikes and their riders, and a genteel picnic scene.

Hope to see you there!

Velo Vivid Spectacular was Brilliant!!

I have to say I could not have asked for a better group of lovely bikelists to turn up to our third annual ride to the Vivid Festival, Sydney.  Everyone made such an effort to look spectacular, with people travelling from far and wide to join in.  I loved the fact that we had a really diverse group of people including families.   These pictures and a great video by Iain (from Team Doge) went a long way to capturing some of the awesomeness of the night but nothing beats being there!

Enjoy!

Can I just say - everyone looked awesome.  Next time we do this we will have a longer meet and greet time at the beginning.  I got a little overwhelmed with the organisation side and really missed out on hearing about where everyone came from, and what all your stories are.  And you were all so creative with your lighting - there were so many ideas to admire. We hope to catch you all at another bike event and to get to know you all much more!
