Berlin Bicycle Week
Fun for the Audience as well: Cycle Parade with Dress Code
The tweed ride is not about speed, skills, or tricks. It is simply about cycling – and most of all about the suitable outfit. Meaning: old English tweed required. Classic bikes are prevalent, but city bikes are allowed as well. Every participant of the fancy dress parade has to stick to the dress code. Jeans and lycra are not permitted to the ride, instead the tweed riders were costumes, light dresses, knickerbockers, three-quarter- or suit trousers with shirts or blouses, and shawl, bowler, straw hat, or the classic safety hood on the head when the ride through the city. That is also where the tweed riders meet like minded folk on Sunday: the participants of the Brompton race.
And if you need a bike for the occasion, you can always rent one from listnride!
