Dapper dandies and elegance over exertion, indeed. Kansas City’s first-ever Tweed Ride will take place on April 3, 2010. In the spirit of “The Golden Age of Bicycles” the Groody Bros. Bicycle Restoration Project is organizing this inaugural Kansas City event. We worked a bit with Bill Poindexter to support the event and now we’re excited to see it take over Kansas City for the day!
Riders will be dressed in their finest turn of the century era wools, tweeds, silks and argyles. Riders will also have the opportunity to be judged and awarded prizes based on appearance, authenticity, originality, and creativity.
Tweed rides have been organized around the world and in cities across the nation since the early 1900’s. Check out Washington DC’s inaugural Tweed Ride on November 15, 2009.
