The Three Aunts
Since the 20s with fervour
We are The Three Aunts, lifelong friends who share the passion of vintage clothing, bikes and fun!
Due to the success of the last four editions of “Tweed Bike Vintage di Udine”, the Three Aunts (Federica, Chiara and Marinella) propose a qualitative leap. The vintage event is a bike itinerary to discover an area of Friuli Venezia Giulia: it is identified with “Alpe Adria” of the Austro-Hungarian period. The route is split into historical stops and annual gourmet conventions: an interesting way to advertise our territory and to have fun by using an eco-friendly means of transport.
From the alps to the Adriac Sea, historical itineraries by vintage bike
The principle aim is to rediscover the pleasure of living the town by riding the bike following unusual routes and discovering hidden places and corners.
