That’s right, Seattle will be hosting a Tweed ride. You have plenty of time to find something to wear, so get after it. Here are some ideas, though your creativity is encouraged. It will be a group ride at a leisurely pace. This ride is about fun, community, and Tweed. Here in the Northwest, wool is popular, so let’s make this a good one. Below are some images from the SF Teed Flickr Pool:

From the organizers:

All you dapper ladies and gents and goody folk,

If you are so inclined to bring along a spot of tea (or other delicious beverages) or some tasty treats (such as scones, finger sandwiches and the like), it would be most appreciated by one and all.

In addition to enjoying a spot of tea, we are most excited by the idea of playing with your balls! Yes, yes! Your hard little balls will fill us with laughter and glee! Bring your croquet and bocce ball sets, and we shall have a grand time playing with the balls and riding the bicycles. The ride shall culminate at a fine British pub-type establishment, where we shall imbibe in the freshest ales and consume wholesome foods.

Good show! Pip, pip!

Cheerio,
Nova & Sylvie

    Wish I could have made the ride. Instead I’m home sick watching the Olympic coverage. Saw your Twitter post. It would be cool to see more pics of other peoples bikes.

    Hello!
    I have an acquaintance looking for Tweed rides in Seattle, and in particular to bolting together a Charity Ride for Women’s shelters.
    Do you still pay attention to this site, have you any information on a Tweed in late 2012 or some time in 2013?

    Please let me know, and I will pass it along.

    Many thanks, it’s been a long time since I’ve been in Seattle, and enjoyed it the two trips I was there.

    Yours in Tweed,
    Ryan Grimm
