Tweed Ride v. Futurebike 3000

Just one detail from one of the many historical bikes on the ride.

On Sunday, my friend Robert Waryszak called a ride for recumbents and others that went along the banks of Gardiner's Creek and The Yarra River.  There had been heavy rain the day before to the extent that the creek had burst its banks and there was still mud and water over the bike track in places.  Arriving at the start point, several would be-riders started ringing Robert on his mobile asking if the ride was going ahead.  Of course it was!  We got only a few spits of rain, but we only had 4 riders on the Vichpv ride, myself, Robert W., Alan B. and another Robert who joined us along the way. 

Anyway from "The Age Newspaper" I knew that a Tweed (dress conservatively and old school with bike to match) ride was being held at Federation Square from 11:30 the same day and our own small ride took a diversion to see what was going on.  Lots of people there.  Lots of fashion!  See here for more fashion oriented pages.  Not sure that Very or myself would've made it onto these pages.  Oh well, we will just get on with our lives and live and breathe another day.
