Melbourne Tweed Ride I – Behind the Scenes

Some of you may know that I like to photograph BusiChics who ride their bikes in style. So I was pretty excited when one of my collaborators in crime, Lara McPherson got involved with the Melbourne Tweed Ride. This is a movement that encourages cyclist to don their Sunday best and bring style and elegance back to cycling, no lycra!

MX Melbourne got on board the movement and Lara rounded up some of us for a photoshoot to help promote the ride,which took place on Sunday November 27th. Scroll down for some behind-the-scenes from the shoot- inspiration for all those thinking of riding their bikes to work in style!
