Photos from a jolly good Tweed Ride

What a splendid day for a bike ride with a rather large group of well-dressed and quite amicable fellow Portlanders! The weather cooperated in a most pleasing way for the 2011 Tweed Ride and a good time was had by all. Observe some of the smashingly dressed folks and fun in the photos and slideshow below.

Mrs Dibbly & I couldn’t do the ride, but we were in the area a little before 11am, so we walked over. Lots of great bikes & clothing.

Union Station made for an interesting starting place. We saw some people who had just arrived in Portland via train (baggage tags on luggage gave it away). It made me think, “what if you had just arrived in Portland and the first thing you encountered is a group gathered for a tweed ride?” Mrs Dibbly reminded me that if you knew you were in Portland it wouldn’t seem strange at all. 🙂

When can we expect Fred Armisen to mock this?

I believe the Bike Snob has already mocked this ahead of Portlandia.

Jolly good show, chaps. One must keep one’s pecker up and not get in a kerfuffle over piddling pillocks pooh-poohing our litlle pootlings about town whilst civilliy attired. Put *that* in their pipe & smoke it.
Pip pip, cheerio.
