I have posted up several photos from the Quad Cities Tweed Ride 2014 for those who would care to take a look.

Well Done Doctor..I myself am girding my loins as it were for a Tweed Ride this coming Saturday (the 25th instant) in Portsmouth NH.

I find them entirely stimulating.
We believe SWMBO will not be attending as the press of the coming Gorge-Ourselves-Food-Holiday puts it's burdens upon the household...

I do have some more pictures and am expecting some soon from others in the event.  I'll be posting them up in a photo album in a day or so!

Nice photo.   Any others?   Rumor has it our next Tweed Ride will be themed Steampunk.   Will have to see.

Enjoyed the local tweed ride very much!  Lots of fun people and an enjoyable ride despite the chill in the air.  Wide variety of styles in both clothing and bicycles on display!

Very good...please keep us posted as to details and after-ride report, if you will.

Comment by Miss Cherries Jubilee on September 21, 2014 at 7:20pm

Oh Mr. Grimm you are my hero.  I think we will plan our ride using mostly the fabulous Burke Gilman trail with a stop at Gasworks for tea.  I think this safer as we only cross streets with cars and bikes usually have the right of way.  I have made this run fairly regularly and there are some lovely restaurants and watering holes on the way.  Spring is good on the trail as the wildflowers are presenting themselves at this time.

Keep asking, there are merely my initial thoughts, I tend to be an excessive planner dealing with any contingency.

Comment by Ryan Grimm on September 18, 2014 at 12:32am

Oh, and DEFINITELY pre-ride the route to gain a perspective of ride time, facilities and road hazards along the way, rally points in case folks get separated...the usual requirements of a large invasion, in other words!

If you stop at pubs etc., check to see how much room/capacity they have if a crowd suddenly shows up.
If a picnic area for tea, for instance, are there portalets/loos available, what are the grounds like, is there a plethora of goose poop on the grass which might make it unpleasant?
If tea is to be set up beforehand, should tables etc. be required, and how is that to be set up and operated?

A consideration....
