Annual ‘Tweed Ride’ to Roll Through D.C. Next Week

Bike riders in old-timey tweed outfits are scheduled to once again cruise down District streets next weekend as part of the annual “D.C. Tweed Ride.”

The “vintage-inspired” ride will launch from  a “secret location” next Sunday, Nov. 6, from 1-4 p.m., according to its organizers.

D.C. Tweed Ride usually takes cyclists through some of the District’s scenic parks and thoroughfares. Along the way, riders will stop for breaks, snacks and probably also to pose daintily.

After the ride, the group will end up at Roofers Union (2446 18th St. NW) for a “jazz-age jam” party.

“The party will be going strong from 5:30 to 9 p.m., and will feature the legendary Dandy Wellington and His Band, the Fidgety Feet Dancers, food, drinks, and the most stylish dandies and dames on this side of the Atlantic,” an Eventbrite page for the ride reads.
