Register Now! The Washington, D.C. Tweed Ride returns for its 11th anniversary edition on Sunday November 3rd!
Fall in Washington, D.C. has fashionable ladies and gentleman contemplating Tweed! That’s right, it’s the celebrated D.C. TWEED RIDE and it’s back for 2019. We enter our second decade with the eleventh annual vintage bicycle ride and JAZZ AGE JAM after-party on Sunday November 3rd, 2019. For the ride, vintage styled bicycles are encouraged, but if you don’t have one, Bikeshare or anything on two wheels is acceptable. All are welcome, but you must complete a free registration form to join the ride.
We will gather at 11:00 AM at the secret ride location which will only be disclosed to those who register. The bell rings at 12:00 noon for our departure. We’ll cruise through the city at a pleasurable pace, enjoying the sights while bringing warmth and brightness to everyone along our route. Don’t forget to pack a picnic lunch or snacks for a mid-ride break. After the 10-mile ride we’ll gather at Roofers Union in Adams Morgan (2446 18th St NW) to celebrate in style for a night of music, dancing, and banter. The party will be jumping from 5:30 to 9:00 PM, featuring the music of the Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers band, great food, a cash bar, and the most stylish dandies and dames this side of the Atlantic!
