The Tweed Ride is Rescheduled to next weekend, Sat. Dec 14th!

December 2, 2013 § Leave a comment

UPDATE! We’re rescheduling the Tweed Ride to next weekend, Saturday (not Sunday!) at 3:30PM due to the freeze. We’re still meeting at the Grassy Knoll downtown. If you’re like us, this gives you an extra weekend to grab your tweed outfit you waited to buy until the last minute! The next day is the Holiday Lights Ride, so two great events in one weekend! Check back for more updates soon.

This weekend is the official Dallas Tweed Ride! And it looks like we’ll finally get a cold day to ride in, unlike past years where we had unseasonably warm winter days that made wearing tweed a bit cumbersome. This is your chance to bust out the mittens, scarves, vests, wool socks, canteens filled with hot chocolate, and calabash pipes to warm your bones on one of the most fun rides of the year.

The ride takes place on Sunday, December 14th, starting at 3:30PM and meeting at the Grassy Knoll downtown. We’ll have our traditional game of tug-of-war, live 1920’s music by Matt Tolentino, a big group photo, and prizes for best dressed male and female riders and best bicycles.

BFOC will provide a keg of beer at the final landing spot, so be sure to bring a couple of bucks to throw into the donations pile. Also, any additional funds we raise will be matched and donated to the Ray Porter Fund. Ray is an Oak Cliff fixture and was recently diagnosed with cancer. 

The facebook event invite is located here. Check there, or here on the blog for any updates to the ride. Cheerio!
