Changing of the Guard

Dear Readers,

We are having a changing of the guard (well, bloggers) here at Alpena Tweed and Bike Club. So as I sign off I would thank you for reading, and hope that you have found the blog both entertaining and informative. I am sure the new bloggers will continue this tradition, and build up a great resource for Tweed Rides all over the world.  I hope to see you on the road. P

Famous Riders

We got these from the Brooks England Facebook page, normally we don't steal things to repost, but they were just too funny. See if you can come up with some better captions.

'I can not tell a lie; I love this ride!'

'I pity the foo' who don't like my bike!'

'It's the Empire's ultimate ride, the Death Star'

'I spin for a hobby'

Good Time at the Ride

There are a few more pictures from this event in the "Past Rides" tab.

Well tomorrow is the day! We will have our Seersucker Ride on June 16th, 2012. The ride will be from 3:30-5:30 starting in Downtown Alpena (in front of Blue Phoenix Books) and finishing at ACC (Alpena Community College).  

"Last fall The Alpena Tweed and Bike Club held its first Tweed Ride. It consisted of a group of cyclists who dressed in traditional cycling attire, particularly tweed suits, to recreate the spirit of a bygone era. Since we have many more friends in town in the summer, than the fall we decided to offer an additional Seersucker ride that is happening this weekend. This was a family friendly event with the goal of taking bicycling back to the day of a fun family adventure. We ask all to attempt the dress of the early 20th century, no matter what kind of bike you ride. If you don’t have the clothing, we ask that you bring your sense of fun, and participate in this ride that is geared to even our slowest riders."

We should have a few friends from the League of Michigan Bicyclists who will be in town for the Sunrise Bicycle Tour. Please come out and show these individuals how friendly Alpena can be.
