Tweed Ride on Sunday.

The fourth annual Tweed Ride was held on Sunday, and it appears to have been yet another smashing success. Despite the threat of downpours throughout the day, a very healthy turnout proved that this ride has become a well-loved tradition here in Portland since it was first held in 2010.
This year’s ride began in Mt. Tabor Park, wove through southeast Portland to Wilshire Park for portraits (taken by a vintage camera), then ended up at Velo Cult in Hollywood for post-ride drinks, live music, dancing, and socializing. I wasn’t able to make the ride, but thankfully there was some truly excellent photographers and videographers on hand.

Thanks to all the volunteers who organized this year’s ride!
