Tweed on, mate.


Tweed bug & Co. Love her gloves and boots.
The Tweed ride on Thursday was so much fun. There was so many good looking boys -and gorgeous girls too, ready to have a super nice mellow ride around town. We started in the Union Square/Market Street area, headed to the Embarcadero and headed towards the pier at the end of Van Ness Ave-SF Maritime Aquatic Park. We saw Corpus Callosum perform very nice pieces of musical melodies.

Cal tweed?

My Peeps. Oh snap!

Market st.

Dusty and Stella

Lovely!

Beach st.

Little bike sunshine. So cute!!

Blue sky, blue bikes.

The Frenchie, the Bat and the F.U.B.

Off to Tosca.
It was great to have the signs that were made for patiently holding traffic, so that we had a smooth ride. Good job darlings!



♥A special thank you the number of you, chaps and ladies, that introduced yourselves with such kind words and lovely comments -Pleasure to meet you as well. I'm very happy to have met so many readers of this little blog of mine. Highly appreciated!!

Everyone having fun on a fine evening bicycle ride accompanied by our city lights, is just so beautiful!

I realized I didn't take pictures of the band! I enjoyed their tunes very much and we ended up dancing to most of their songs. You can catch the rest of the photo lovers on wheels on Flickr's Tweed Pool.

  2. Tweed rides are really catching on. Susan from Rocket Fuel told me that Sydney Australia will be having theirs soon.

  3. I like those signs a lot. I think I need to mount a couple on my bikes permanently! The tweed rides are spreading south! I don't know if they'll work in SoCal, though. Maybe a Twill Ride, though!

  4. D'oh. Textile vocabulary fail. Tweed is a kind of twill. Oh well.

  5. Fabulous pictures! I'd love to see a picture of your outfit. I so wanted cyclists in London really to be dressed like that, but no luck. ;) Perhaps I should have tried Oxford.

    I'm leaving for Chicago's inaugural Tweed Ride soon and will put some pictures up later today.

  6. Marc- you better make sure you ride the DMC bike! Tweed and hip hop go well together!!!

    Meli- We were a good looking crowd! Maybe we need an SF Disco ride! That could be super fun!
