How to Dress for a Tweed Ride: Very Proper!

January 28, 2010

We’d love to see you wearing TWEED on the first ArtRide of 2010, Friday February 5!

There are plenty of wool tweedy looking jackets at the thrift store from 50c to $8; I even saw a 44R full coat length real wool grey tweed coat for $8 at Goodwill. Lots of wool tweedy looking pants and skirts too! A dress shirt (preferably white, and even better with a wool vest on top) and some sensible shoes completes your ensemble. Pants too short? Turn them into knickers with some argyle socks! Please no blue jeans, sneakers or lycra! At least wear brown! For night rides, everyone needs a headlight and a blinking red taillight. More blinky, LED & EL wire fun the better on any ride!

These Tweed photos came from here.

Also pictured is the winner of “The Most Snappy Lass” contest from the Chicago Tweed Ride, from the blog, “Let’s GO Ride a Bike” where you’ll find more pictures from their Tweed Ride last spring.

We love having families on the ArtRides, but for safety sake, we have a few rules:

EVERYONE under 18 must have a helmet (that’s the law) and be with someone over 18.

NIGHT RIDES–children under 8 MUST ridealong with an adult. That means a bike seat, a trailerbike or in a trailer. Children should have a blinking tail light also.

DAY RIDES–children younger than 8 MAY ride without an adult at the adult’s discretion and with the ride leader’s approval.  You can ride with us when we are on a bike path or on the promenade; please do not try to ride with us downtown. Exceptions might be made for  6 and older experienced riders on geared bikes with good breaks.

PS While you’re thrift storing it, you might keep an eye out for bridal wear–the next theme is the Brides of March! FFArtRide March 5 and day ride TBA (March 13?)

    A bride ride?! I would so be there, if I were not so far away. I totally need an excuse to wear my wedding dress again.

    Dottie, I hope one day you’ll join one of our ArtRides!! If you ever plan to be in LA, we’re just a hop skip and a jump away! We’d even plan a weekend ride to accomodate YOUR schedule!

    PS Love your blog!
