Vintage Tweed Cape Bicycle Inspiration in Rain by RidingPretty

Despite the rain bursts out of nowhere I managed to stay very cozy and dry - and I owe it to my my vintage tweed cape. My bicycle is another story. Rain and my vintage DL-1 Raleigh do not fare so well together. It is because of the rod brakes - they don't handle safely. This equals to a Mad Dash and jumping over rain puddles.

This outfit would be so ideal for a Tweed Run -- Is anyone still looking for inspiration to put something together for one of the remaining Tweed Rides or Runs coming up this weekend?
This outfit was rather unexpected, but worked perfectly for me!

I still have more tweed outfits I am hoping to share, I'm Tweed obsessed I guess!

p.s. Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving everyone!
