BFOC Hosts Dallas’ Third Tweed Ride

Posted in Bicycle Events, Bike Friendly by dickdavid on November 2, 2011

For the third year, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff will be hosting the Dallas Tweed Ride. Here are the details:

Date: Sunday, November 13, 2011
Time: 1:30 pm
Start:  The grassy knoll in Downtown Dallas (at Dealey Plaza)
RSVP: via Facebook

“The ride will take us through historic Oak Cliff with stops at the Turner House for lawn games and merriment, the Bishop Arts District to stroll the outdoor market at CliffFest, and finally returning to Downtown Dallas. This ride has become an institution in Dallas bringing out over one hundred chaps and lasses all wearing their finest knickers and caps. Last year’s event included dancing, tug-of-wars, umbrella jousting, cucumber sandwich tosses, and beer relays. Expect all of that and more as we prepare for another rousing ride through our fare city.” More info here.

This is a fun ride. If you haven’t tried it before, we suggest that you try it. The pace is slow and the scene is an amazing spectacle of interesting bicycle attire. It may run a bit late, so don’t forget to bring your lights. Here are my pics from last year.
