Many of you might be concerned that you missed tweed ride this year. Not to worry. This year’s ride is scheduled for Saturday, October 5 at 10 a.m.  Mark your calendars, start shopping for tweed and get your bikes ready for the ride. More details to come.

Stay tuned and come back here for updates in the coming month!

We would very much like to update our Gallery page with photos from our most recent outing.  If you have a link to a photo sharing site please send it to tweedrideKC@gmail.com.  If you are willing to burn them to a disk or jump drive we would be glad to make arrangements to collect your photos in that manner as well.  Your jump drive will be returned just as soon as we have copied the images.

Based on the latest metrological data we believe there exists a very safe window of opportunity to proceed with the ride this morning.  Our event should conclude around 2:00 p.m.  The threat of severe weather is forecast for much later in the afternoon and evening.  Velocipede & Tweed Indeed – The Kansas City Tweed Ride will be held as originally planned and scheduled.

Come again another day, the  Tweed Riders want to play!

We’re keeping a close eye on the weather forecast.  While this is a rain or shine event we will not risk life or limb if the weather is extreme.  Regrettably, the park does not have a rain refund policy.  We may have to come up with an alternative date (and possibly a different starting location) should the storms prevail.

We will make a final determination and post it here no later than 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
