Swing&Ride 2018 – EN

Dear Swing Dance and Music lovers!

You are welcome to participate in an afternoon style party on two wheels. Hop up your granddad’s bicycle, find yourself a stylish outfit and come join us for a ride, dance and a picnic! This year Estonian Bicycle Museum is also taking part of the fun with their awesome vintage bikes.

Swing&Ride is all about style! The idea comes from a London based event called The Tweed Run that was first held in 2009 and has gained world-wide popularity ever since. Relevant garments are mandatory – you are expected to wear traditional English sporty attire. Think tweed! Find inspiration here. 

Swing&Ride – the style party of wheels – takes place this Sunday, September 16, 2018, beginning at 1 pm. We’ll get together  in Kalamaja Cemetery Park.

We’ll kick off the party in the park with dancing to swing music from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Everyone gets a sticker confirming their participation. The sticker can be attached to clothes or the bicycle.

The ride starts around 2:00 pm. All participants will follow the tour guide. Our team members – distinguished by hand straps – will help to assure safety. Please be sure to follow their instructions!

The route:
Kalamaja Kalmistupark – Kultuurikilomeeter – Kalaranna – Vesilennuki – Lennusadama kai – Vesilennuki – Kalaranna – Oda  -Küti – Noole – Köie – Vana-Kalamaja – Kotzebue – Vabriku – Malmi – Telliskivi -*Telliskivi Loomelinnak (*layover) – Telliskivi – Malmi – Valgevase – Kalevi – Kungla – Kalamaja Kalmistupark.

Afterwards, we’ll welcome everyone to the picnic at 3:30 pm. in Kalamaja Cementery Park. You can easily spot the right place by swing music. Take along some snacks, drinks, a picnic blanket and other equipment for leisure activities. We kindly ask you to keep your surroundings tidy and avoid littering. Please note that drinking alcohol in public is forbidden!

Take the time to check that your two-wheeled friend is fit for riding. Also, make sure to fix it up with a bell and reflectors in case you haven’t already done so! Everyone under 16 years has to wear helmets.

We’ll push off by all means, come rain or shine. So stock up on stylish umbrellas and rain capes! Also, don’t forget to find a proper outfit according to the traditional English style or the Swing era!
