June is becoming a prime month for Tweed Rides and Vintage Rides. And why not? By adding adventure to otherwise ordinary vacation plans, and along with ideal temperate weather in many places, June’s Tweed and Vintage Rides are a proving to be a destination of desire deep in the hearts for many of us. Have a look at some of June's rides below and you'll see what I mean.
The distinctions are blurring. Is it a Vintage Ride with some people wearing Tweed attire? Or is it a Tweed Ride with some people wearing vintage anything attire?
Is it a Seersucker Ride, a Linen Ride predicated by sheer practicality due to the blistering hot temperatures? What about French inspired rides -- baguettes and berets anyone? What about the Eroica Rides with perfectly classic and authentic cycle racing attire, (say for instance merino wool) which becomes the de rigueur?
Of course and needless to say, many spend way more attention to the actual bicycle that is being ridden -- it’s authenticity and roadworthiness, and how it’s vintage pedigree stands up, it’s overall appeal, and finally the way the bike has been highly personalized and styled to wildly idiocentric and delightfully eccentric tastes.
Cheers! - See you in July, or perhaps August since summer is a slow time for adding new rides.
