Ballarat Tweed Ride (SOLD OUT) & Tweed Fashions on the Field

About this event

Tweed Ride SOLD OUT - Tickets still available for the Tweed Fashions on the Field

Join us for Ballarat's iconic Tweed Ride. A casual event of fashion, cycling and fun. Riders dress in vintage and heritage-inspired outfits wearing tweeds, velvets, capes and kilts and ride through Ballarat's beautiful autumn streets.

All participants should be confident enough to ride their bike on a road and physically fit enough to ride comfortably for around 12km on mostly flat terrain.

All bikes are welcome. The best vintage, replica, interesting and stylish bikes will be invited to enter the Tweed Fashions on the Field event held immediately after the ride at the Ballarat Mining Exchange.

The ride route will travel around Lake Wendouree, down Sturt Street to the Town Hall for a group photo, then it will finish at the Mining Exchange where the Tweed Fashion event will take place.

Detailed information will be sent to all riders after they register, or you can access the participant information pack here.

The riding part of the event will take place from 10am - 12pm.

The fashions part of the event will run from 12pm - 3pm.

Registration can be made for either or both events.
