Around two hundred cyclists wearing period dresses were cited at the Tweed Ride Madrid’s fifth edition, which for the first time devoted part of its collection to the Fundación Aladina.
The Tweed Ride is a cyclist movement whose members try to recall the classic image of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The goal is to vindicate the use of bikes in a different and funny way.
This Sunday, the participants of this singular race defied the heat in the Spanish capital city and enjoyed – either as a couple or with friends – the many parallel activities scheduled, such as a visit to the Museo del Traje, Charleston and Swing dance, food trucks, and the end of the party with a DJ, prices and contests.
The Tweed Ride Madrid has become one of the reference bike events in Spain and in the racetrack of European capital cities, among which we can also highlight the Tweed Run in London, the Beret Baguette Bike Ride in Paris or the Tweed Ride “La Belle Epoque” in Rome.
This year, the Tweed Ride Madrid has taken a step forward by showing support for children and teenagers with cancer by donating part of the money raised to the Fundación Aladina.
