Ballarat Tweed Ride

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM


Join for Ballarat’s iconic Tweed Ride – a unique ride through Ballarat’s historic and picturesque autumn streets in high style. A casual event of fashion, cycling and fun, riders dress in vintage and heritage-inspired outfits wearing tweeds, velvets, capes and kilts. Participants should be confident enough to ride their bike on the 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 to be held immediately after the ride at the Ballarat Mining Exchange. Riders will travel around Lake Wendouree then down Sturt Street to the Town Hall for a group photo before finishing the ride at the Mining Exchange. Riders are encouraged to join the Tweed Fashions on the Field event after the ride.
