Tampa Bay’s First “Tweed Ride”

My friend Chip Haynes just sent in the following details on an upcoming fun ride in the Tampa Bay area:

The First Annual Pinellas County Tweed Ride

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Leaving from Eagle Lake County Park, 1800 Keene Road in Largo at 10 a.m.

and arriving at the Safety Harbor Spa well in time for lunch.

Proper attire and mount required.*

*Please note: This is a ride for vintage British three-speed bicycles and traditional fixies with their owners in appropriate cycling attire.

Please dress, and ride, accordingly.

Tweed’s in short supply in our tropical climes, so if you’re interested in riding, start scrounging for appropriate attire. I wonder if someone should host a “seersucker ride” for our fair area?
