Updates and Details for SF Tweed 2016

Posted By on November 1, 2016

Hey Tweedies! Only a couple days until the big event! We have updated the meeting place to Dolores Park – nearby 16th and 24th St. Bart . Couple things…

1) We will gather on the lower level near the tennis courts. The weather is looking cool and cloudy- perfect for Tweed!
2) Bring water, a picnic and sturdy bike! The final stop will serve food and drink if you prefer not to bring your own food.
3) Please check your bike thoroughly before the big day as we are an unsupported ride. There will likely be folks who have tools in case of break-downs but we encourage self-reliance!
4) We will ask you to sign a waiver to receive your memento. We are all volunteers. Sf Tweed is not an official entity and we do not carry insurance. We do our best to make our rides as safe as possible but ultimately you are responsible for your own safety. As long as you stay with the group and follow the instructions of the leaders, all should be fine!
5) Because SF Tweed is held in San Francisco (no, really?) tackling hills is almost unavoidable. Our route has some slow and steady climbing in the beginning, some steep downhills and one more block of climbing toward the end. Most of the route is flat.

Looking forward to seeing you!!

SF Tweed Ride Update!

Posted By on September 26, 2016

SF Tweed is proud to announce that Huckleberry Bikes will sponsor the upcoming ride on November 6! We are working with them to make this ride extra fantastic! http://www.huckleberrybicycles.com/

SF Tweed is all volunteer-run and we free to everyone who wants to attend! Unfortunately, putting on an event like this does not come without expenses and most of these we can cover out-of-pocket. This year has brought some unexpected financial challenges and many of you expressed a desire to contribute to the cause. We launched an indiegogo campaign to make it easy for anyone who wishes, to donate. If you can’t contribute, don’t fret…the ride will continue as scheduled and will still be free to attend! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2016-sf-tweed-ride-fashion/x/1818242#/

Thank you!!

SF Tweed Ride 2016!

On Sunday April 17, 2016 SF Tweed made the trek to Portland to meet and greet (and ride bikes with!) our fellow Tweedsters! Needless to say, a fantastic time was had by all! We met in Chapman square and took a leisurely but warm (82 degrees!) ride through downtown, over bridges and various neighborhoods. We made a brief stop for tea and ended the day at Old Portland Hardware and Architectural. It was great to meet new friends and connect with our Tweed community! Congrats to the organizers and thanks for all your hard work!

Tweeds of Belleville, Sept 16th

Posted By on August 10, 2009

Les Triplettes De BellevilleSF Tweed is pleased to announce the next San Francisco tweed ride! Wednesday September 16th, we will be joining the fine chaps of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition for their Bike-In Movie screening of Triplets of Belleville.

As no tweed outing is proper without a bit of pedaling, we will be meeting up at Dolores Park at the Bell near 19th St at the far tennis courts at 18th and Church. for an slightly abridged tweed ride at 6:30 pm. From Dolores we will pedal off through the Mission with a quick stop for libations before we arrive at 8pm for the SFBC Bike-In Movie (Parking lot across from the Good Hotel, 112 Seventh Street, at Mission).

Note, due to the need to get to the movie on time there will be no scheduled BART meet up with East Tweeds. We still would love to see all our East Tweed cousins and encourage all to show up for libations and the movie!

UPDATE: we have changed the start location to the tennis courts because the Bay Area Derailleurs Bicycle Dance Troupe has asked the dapper SF Tweed riders to be extras in a short 10-15 minute filming session with their troupe!
