Come one, come all, come if you like to dress up and ride bikes...

The Christchurch Tweed Riders are a group of semi-unorganised, like minded individuals who like to look dapper and ride old and old style bicycles about. Anyone is welcome to join a ride, but there is a strict no carbon and no lycra policy. The punishment for either indiscretion will be merciless mocking and perpetrators having to shout the first round of drinks on the ride.

Picnic at Cranmer Square

Ladies and Gentlemen, announcing the upcoming Christchurch Tweed Riders' jaunt. On Saturday the 27th of October we have a city ride planned. We will be meeting at Pomeroy's Old Brewery Inn at the Fitzgerald end of Kilmore St at 11am. Riding along the quake ravaged river banks and stopping whenever the mood takes us as we head to Cranmer Square for a picnic lunch, and with any luck a tour of one of the historical cottages facing the Square. From there we'll head to Smash Palace and any other establishments and/or parks that take the whims of those present before returning to Pomeroys.

Bring a packed lunch, bring a thermos, bring a hip flask, bring a blanket, your family, your pets or your antique croquet set. Whatever takes your fancy. For those who don't wish to portage their victuals about during the ride we will stop at appropriate establishments on the way to Cranmer Sq to procure sustenance. 

See you there!

Welcome to the inaugural post of the Christchurch Tweed Riders blog. Here you will find information about upcoming rides, evidence of our previous exploits and occasionally photographs of some of diverse bicycles that those who ride with us build, restore and covet. If dressing up in your Sunday best (or more accurately your great grandfather or mother's Sunday best), riding bikes and talking bollocks is your idea of a good time, this is the place for you. Come along for a ride!
