What’s On: National Tweed Ride 2024

This cycling festival is all about the gin, with exercise playing second fiddle.

What: Blackwell and Sons National Tweed Ride 2024
When: Easter Saturday, 30th  March,
Where: Greytown, South Wairarapa

Greytown’s National Tweed Ride is making its return for a fourth year.

This Easter 2024 Saturday, Greytown’s charming leafy byways will once again resound with joyous hoots, bubbly bonhomie and tinkling bicycle bells as riders from all over fair Aotearoa take part in the fourth annual National Tweed Ride.

It’s become the biggest non-lycra cycling event in New Zealand, with a comedic twist. Other countries take their Tweed riding quite seriously, but the New Zealand edition is all about fun, laughter, and no sweating or exertion. The ride will take approximately 75 minutes. It’s flat and gentle.

With plenty of stops along the way to sample a Hendrick’s based beverage, the National Tweed Ride is a gentle bike excursion along Greytown’s scenic country lanes dressed in Tweedish costumes, with prizes and entertainment throughout the afternoon. Tickets sell out quickly, so make sure to secure your spot on the Blackwell and Sons website, and be in to win a couples’ National Tweed Ride package worth more than $350 on our competitions page.
