Tweed Ride Pittsburgh 4/03 at 3pm

Tweed Bike Ride PittsburghPittsburgh's Premier Tweed Ride, Saturday April 3rd, 2010, 3pm.

The Tweed Ride starts at Doughboy Square (the confluence of Penn Ave and Butler St) and continues to Piper’s Pub on the South Side.

Pittsburgh's Tweed Ride is sponsored by ClankWorks (more on them shortly).

What is a Tweed Ride? A Tweed Ride is a bicycle ride featuring riders wearing traditional tweed garments rather than lycra or spandex; the bicycles are often older models; and if we're lucky, someone will bring along a penny-farthing bike.

Tweed rides have recently been seen in San Francisco, DC, and Los Angeles. Here's a photo from the November LA Tweed Ride:

This leaves me with two questions:
1. Can I find a tweed sweater?
2. Is there such a thing as black-and-gold Tweed?
