Getting My Tweed On

Newer Older

Not quite finished with my outfit for next Saturday's Tweed Ride in Toronto but getting there. Not sure if I will go with these pants or another dark wool pair that I have with the old school button up front flap. Just need a jacket since it may be more fall-like weather next week!

The Tweed Ride is a fund raiser for Bikes Without Borders. This is my first year participating and I can't wait to see everyone gathered together for such a good cause. A charity event, bicycles AND costumes?? I think I'm in heaven! ;)

A big thank you to those who have already sponsored me - muchly appreciated! ox

    Back in the day they wore "stays" on one's legs. Basiclally little leather straps over pants that prevented pants from getting stuck in chain of bicycle.

    Never knew about this ride?.... But it does sound like an great thing to participate it.
    Saw this picture and my immediate reaction was.. WOW ! Your bike looks GREAT ! Then I noticed you Georgie.... hahaha.. Just kidding. You look good in tweed ;)

    Actually I was planning on trying to make something like that since the pants are quite full. Research to be done!

    I only found out because I know the person that is the admin for the BikingTO Flickr group.
    Thanks on both counts! ;p

    I have no tweed, so I had to opt out, though this looks like fun. Tweed suits you.

    Enjoy! Am sat here looking at tiny bit of Harris Tweed in form of a bag, I cycled a long and hard detour to pick up from the Isle of Harris about 5yrs ago.

    Thanks so much and thanks for helping out! :)

    Neither did I until I hit Value Village. You still have time! ;)
    Thanks!

    Sounds like quite the bag to make such a detour for - do you have photos of it?

    I have a plan for next week to protect them for the ride. :)

    -If your plan is to not wear pants, you might want to come up with something different. Could be a bit chilly. And didn't you already do *that* bike ride?!
