Tweed Ride Gasworks to the University Clocktower
Sun 29 September 10.00am - 11.30am
Cost $5 per person / $10 family (proceeds go to the Gasworks Museum)
Within one month of the ordinance of the Otago Provincial Council establishing the University of Otago, the first bicycle built in Auckland was ridden for the first time in 1869. Bicycles are also built and ridden in Christchurch and Dunedin in that year.
Get on your bike, young or old, and join the annual fun ride from the Gasworks Museum, Braemar Street, South Dunedin to the University Clocktower. We will set off at a leisurely pace, flat all the way, stopping at the Railway Station for a photo opportunity, before finishing at approximately 11:30 am at the University.
Members of the Gasworks Guild of Gadgeteers steampunk group and Images of the Past Victorian costume group will be waiting to welcome us at the University, as well as a coffee cart!
Prizes for best-dressed riders.
Meet at the Gasworks Museum on Braemar Street at 10am for a 10.30am start.
