An Lanntair is delighted to announce the return of the annual Harris Tweed Bike Ride!
Cycling can be sweaty work. Especially if you’re bedecked like a Victorian in tweed. Don’t worry! The annual parade round town is not only sedate and civilised, there are up to three pit-stops for refuelling and nourishment. Sometimes black pudding, sometimes gin. All perfectly legal.
And in the grandest traditions of the Tour de France the best dressed rider receives Le Maillot Jaune aka An Geansaidh Buidhe aka The Yellow Jersey, specially knitted for the occasion. The youngest winner gets The White Jersey. Future family heirlooms.
If you don’t own your own tweed you can try on some Harris Tweed from the HTA collection – all available at a table in the An Lanntair foyer.
Ticket price includes tea and a scone at the end of the ride.
BYOB (Bring your own bicycle).
Tickets on sale soon!
This event is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides LEADER 2014-2020 programme.
