Put on your most dapper tweed, grab a bicycle, and join the merriment at this one-of-a-kind bicycle event. The San Francisco Tweed Ride rolls again! The new edition of this venerable bicycle institution is organized by Melissa of Bike Pretty.
It’s a sartorial celebration–by bike–for riders of different ages, types, and skill levels to enjoy. Don your most dapper woolens. Ride with the most dashing dames and dandies as we tour San Francisco in fine, two-wheeled style.
The ride is fun and safe with stops to socialize along the way. We follow a planned (secret) route and endeavor to be courteous to our more pedestrian fellows. Of utmost importance is to spread the good cheer of the Tweed Ride.
Tell your friends and bring your family and other loved ones. RSVP here so we know how much tea to brew. Or comment below and be counted.
What to bring:
Picnic blanket (optional)
Lights, layers, locks (just in case)
Before the final stop, we’ll take a short detour to Iladora Apparel‘s SOMA studio for an early afternoon libation and a special photo op to capture what we know will be the most dashing tweed bike style we’ve ever seen.
We end at a capacious public house where we can all raise a pint to our newfound camaraderie.
PUBLIC Bikes are designed to put a smile on your face and make you feel like a kid again. We have retail stores at 549 Hayes in San Francisco and 205 Alice Street in Oakland.
Ligne 8 is a new apparel lifestyle brand for the urban cycling commuter who wants to cycle to and fro, without worrying about the weather, style or appearances. We are looking forward to hosting a tea break and previewing our new Fall 2014 Collection which includes a few tweed styles inspired by Tweed Runs around the globe.
