Winnipeg Tweed Ride

Winnipeg's Second Annual Tweed Ride is around the corner. September 11, 2011 to be exact.

I wish I could attend but the starting point is at Assiniboine Park and the ride is about 10 km into the downtown. Yeah, not going to happen no matter how much I would like to participate.

You see it would mean a 34.5 km to get to the park and back even before the 10 km leisurely bike ride. And driving to the park with my bike? Well, just plain silliness. Besides, my post-accident knee won't be able to handle the 20 km there-and-back ride no matter how leisurely it is.

I do think that checking out all the tweed attired riders and taking some photos might be in order? A perfect excuse to get to the park and enjoy the gorgeous fall colours that are about to appear. And maybe brunch afterwards.  Now what to wear for the occasion?
