New Year’s Day Tweed Ride

Our local Tweedsters partook in a New Year’s Day ride this year. We missed the ride, but from all reports it was a fun time (though they did get a little wet). This was the second in what we hope will be a long series of these jovial excursions. The next ride is on the schedule for March 28th.

    @ Andy E. Hey Andy I had a blast riding with you and the rest of the Tweed folks! I had the black Raleigh super course. Wasn’t the pizza the best! Hot Italian is great! Well, just had to chime in, see you next time, Dougman.

    @ alan
    It’s actually an orange stripe on my wool jersey! The bag is an ostrich, and there is a matching seatbag on back.

    @Doug R
    Hey man! yeah it was a lot of fun eh? That SC of yours was pretty sweet. I didn’t make it to Hot Italian, had stuff to do @ home. The food there is pretty good though. See you next time!

  • Doug R. says:

    @ Andy E. Oh, that’s right you split off, (old man forgets a lot)! We did dry out and consume a bunch of great pizzas. They even made us a special “New Years” pizza that had lentil beans and pork. It is a tradition the Italians do to symbolize wealth and prosperity. Well, I loved your International too! Hey, see ya’ on the March (dry I hope) ride Andy. Dougman.

    Someone needs to make tweed helmet covers.

  • Doug R. says:

    Dougman@ Leaf S. Hey, if you invent those Tweed helmet covers I want a Haring bone one!

  • Leaf S. says:

    Hey Doug, first I need to develop the wicker helmet for them to cover. Or someone could bring back the hairnet but instead of leather it could be tweed covered.

  • Doug R. says:

    Oh, what we silly humans do for style!

    Sadly the Sac Bee story link is broken. Can’t find it via search either.
