In case it has slipped your mind, don’t forget that this Saturday is Portland’s first-ever Tweed Ride. To guide you to utmost enjoyment of this affair, graphic artist, freak bike maker, and volunteer Tweed Ride promoter Gabriel Amadeus recently offered these pointers:
There are no dress or bike requirements. Show up in spandex, I don’t care. Yes you will probably be mocked.
Riders are encouraged to bring food, beverages, and merriment for sharing.
Tea and Crumpets will be provided by Black Sheep Bakery at a midpoint.
Adam Arnold will be judging the fashion show!
We’ll have cheap New Belgium beer for sale post ride at Backspace with proceeds benefiting Mercy Corps.
Les Triplettes de Belleville will be shown following the ride.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
