Organizers of the Portland Tweed Ride are stepping down and the hunt is on for new blood to make the ride happen for the third straight year.
The ride, which pays homage to classic tweed and bicycling civility and styles of a bygone era, was first held in Portland in 2010. There were about 150 people who turned out for that inaugural ride. Last year, the ride once again attracted a healthy (and quite good-looking crowd.
One of the ride’s organizers, Jocelyn Gaudi, works with Alta Bike Share and is currently working on a big project in New York City. Another, Evan P. Schneider, is busy enjoying the success of his excellent new book, A Simple Machine, Like the Lever.
If you think you have what it takes (and the wardrobe to go along with it) to organize this ride, step up and get in touch. I’ll connect you with the folks who can help you make it happen.
For a bit of inspiration, here are a few more photos from Tweed Rides’ past…
