Due to rain the ride will be pushed back to November 5th. Can’t control Mother Nature. We apologize.
The First Annual Newark Historic Tweed Run,will be a casual low endurance Bike Ride through the City of Newark’s Historic Central Ward. The actual ride will be no more than 5 miles with stops at several key historical landmarks in Newark’s Central Ward.
Riders are expected to wear Traditional British “Tweed” cycling attire. Any bike is acceptable but classic Bikes are encouraged.
We do ask all participants to don their finest Tweed attire. There will be prizes for these categories:
Best dressed Chap or Fellow
Best Dressed Dame or Lady
Best Beard and Mustache
Best Bike Men’s and Women
The ride will begin in Military Park and the closing reception will be at Taste Lounge where we will have Live Jazz, refreshments, and award presentations.
Since we are riding in the street (while utilizing bike lanes) , we are asking parents that if you have children but would like them to be a part of the ride that you either have a child bike seat or something that can have them in tow. Teenagers are welcome to ride on their own. Students in high school or college can pay the “Halsey St.” price which is 15 dollars. All others are the “Broad and Market” Price which is 25 dollars.
With registration, all attendees will receive a classic armband with your rider number to accentuate your Tweed attire. This armband will get you access to:
- The historic tour on bikes and access to locations
- A swag bag that includes official t shirt and coupons for local business
- Eligibility to win for best dressed male/female, best bike, and best moustache beard competition
- Access to Taste Lounge for presentation of awards and jazz reception
- photo booth pictures
- Access to Step and repeat photos for documentation
- Access to any snacks and beverages along the route that will be provided
We want this to be a yearly event that has swag, style, and class so bring your “A” game with creativity and Lets riiiiiiiiide.
