More of the Sydney Tweed Ride - 2009
Ah, a lovely ride around some wonderful locations! Picture taken from the park under the southern approach of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney.
On the right this fellow took out the prize for best dressed gent. Picture taken at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, the Domain, Sydney.
Sydney Tweed Ride 2009 - Prize winner for "Most Retro" (best facial hair). Sorry, I cannot remember his name, as he was only known to me as "Mutton-chops" or "Kylie's Dad". A lovely touch is the Gladstone Bag held onto the rear rack with leather straps. Picture taken at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, Sydney.
In this picture we see Betty, prize-winner for best-dressed lady with her Pashley bicycle chatting to a fellow who has brought a vintage Moulton 16" wheeled bicycle. Picture taken at Observatory Hill, Sydney
Prize-winner for best ride was this Harry Quinn Cycles machine. In absolutely beautiful condition. I apologise for not being able to get a better shot. Next year I plan to arrive early and get participants to pose for portraits with their bicycles at the start of the ride. Picture taken at Centennial Park, Sydney.
A lovely young lady with a small-wheeled bicycle. This style of bicycle was introduced in the late 1960's, took off in the 1970's and became something of a cultural icon in England. Picture taken at Centennial Park, Sydney.
