Graeme Simp­son, of Oa­maru, leads the fifth an­nual Dunedin Tweed Ride on his penny farthing yes­ter­day.

He was one of about 30 peo­ple who par­tic­i­pated in the leisurely cy­cle ride along the newly opened sec­tion of the Otago Penin­sula cy­cle­way.

Many of the rid­ers sported their best tweed cloth­ing and spring frocks, and rode bi­cy­cles of dif­fer­ent eras.

The event started at the Dunedin Gas­works Mu­seum in South Dunedin.

It fin­ished about 9km away at the Glen­fal­loch Wood­land Gar­den, on the Otago Penin­sula.

Many of the rid­ers took a pic­nic lunch with them, and en­joyed it at the gar­den af­ter the ride.

The event was held to raise funds for the Dunedin Gas­works Mu­seum.
