Twine & Tweed Cycle

The Tweed & Twine Cycle celebrates the humble bicycle (in particular the High Nellie) which was once the preferred mode of transport in Ireland. It will start at Curraghmore House on the 16th September 2023 and follow the Greenway route before returning to Curragmore House (the historic home of the 9th Marquis of Waterford) for a picnic on the grounds. This will be a round trip of 25 miles (40 kms). The format of this event will be similar to the ‘Tweed Run’ events run in the UK. We have named this event  the ‘Tweed & Twine’ run in acknowledgement of the often preferred method for reducing the aerodynamic drag (ie tie them with twine !) of tweed jackets adopted by our cycling predecessors!
