September 2012 events – Auckland

The Tweed Run

Tweed is so the thing for all our frockfabuloso peeps out there. It is sweeping the globe as the ‘must do’ cyclecentric event and is soooo ‘now’. What’s more, the Auckland tweed run starts with brunch … how can you resist.

The Auckland Tweed Run will be happening:
When: at 11 am Sunday 16th September 2012
Where: starting with brunch at T Whites Everyday Bikes (The 2nd Hand Bike Shop) with free scones, champagne etc,
the ride will then take a leisurely route through the Grey Lynn/ Ponsonby area with a stop for a trim cappi frappy latte coffee … in ponsonby, of course!

Invitation to the Suffrage Day celebrations

Suffragettes famously rode the country on their bicycles in the 19th century petitioning for the right to vote. So it seems totally fitting that some of our fabulous flock of modern-day frockilicious trailblazers would be interested in this event:
The National Council of Women Auckland Branch have very kindly invited Frocks on bikes to join the Suffrage Day celebrations at the Auckland Suffrage Memorial in Khartoum Place (that’s just off Lorne Street in the Auckland CBD).

When: Wednesday the 19th of September 2012, 12.30pm, bring your bike along rain or shine
What: A range of speakers, entertainment, activities, bagpipes and camelias – wow that sounds good! you really can’t beat the combination of bagpipes and camelias. ALSO The fabulous mezzo-soprano Mary Newman-Pound will sing … gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
