Your guide to Saturday’s Tweed Ride

Posted by on January 29th, 2010 at 11:08 am

I snagged this from the
Goodwill a few days ago!

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.

    After all this goes down there will be a great show at Backspace later in the Eve.

    Tha brilliant Leb Borgeson’s solo act Quiet Countries will be playing, always a pleasure.

    I hope the weather cooperates, but hey, who doesn’t carry a waxed cotton rain cape with them?

    Is your bow-tie supposed to match your bartape or your socks?
    What a conundrum.
