  • Tweed Comes to DC!

    Posted by WayneBingham on November 6th, 2009

    Hey, just learned about this.  Here at Velo Classique, we have been kicking around the idea of trying to organizing a Tweed Ride in DC for a while now.  We’ve always been a fan of the Tweed Rides in San Francisco, Chicago, Portland, London, etc., and, quite frankly,  jealous that there wasn’t one here locally.  So, we sat around and talked about it a lot (there was probably beer involved), and actually had the framework of a plan, thinking Spring would be a good time.  Well, it now looks like we’ve been beaten-to-the-punch on this one.  That’s cool, ’cause we’re happy to have someone else do the leg-work so we can just don our dandiest dudes and enjoy the ride!

    To summarize, the ride happens on November 15th (that’s 9 days from today!) and will begin at 11:00 AM on 8th & H Street N.E. “behind the big bank”.  That’s in the immediate neighborhood where the “old” 9:30 club used to be (for those that remember that sort of thing).  The Velo Classique crew will definitely be there, so come out and join us.  BTW, Velo Classique also still has a small supply of wool jerseys and even a few pair of vintage wool-blend knichers, just in case your tweed knickers are at the cleaners.  Now, where did I put my wool argyle knee sox?
