Auckland Tweed Run

Auckland NZ’s homage to the international anachronistic Tweed Run phenomena of dressing up in old fashioned clothes and riding a bicycle.

It’s free and all are welcome- just find some tweed, bring a picnic and come on a bike!

T. Whites Bikes to Highwic House- Sunday 7th April 2013.
12pm onwards, meeting at T.Whites Everyday Bikes, 132 Symonds St.

This time round we are collaborating with Highwic House by riding our bikes to their Art Deco Day Out picnic.

Tweed-Run-4--Highwick

It is up to attendees to bring their own helmets and safety gear and be responsible for themselves in the traffic.
