Event Details

In the spirit of “The Golden Age of Bicycles,” BikeWalkKC cordially invites you to attend in the eighth annual Kansas City Tweed Ride – Velocipede & Tweed Indeed! Please join us on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 at Cliff Drive, Kessler Park in Kansas City, MO for an afternoon of sophisticated social revelry upon the most marvelous machines ever devised by man.

We will congregate at the Colonnade at the intersection of St. John Avenue and Gladstone Blvd. at 10 a.m., with the ride to commence at approximately  11 a.m..  Dress in your finest turn of the century era wools, tweeds, silks and argyles*. Riders, and their machines, will have the opportunity to be judged and awarded prizes based on appearance, authenticity, originality, and creativity.

Tweed Ride Attire

Fashionable vintage street clothing is encouraged but not required. Steampunk is also welcome. Raid the attic, scavenge the thrift shops, dust off the sewing machine – but no spandex, please!

Tweed Ride Bikes

Vintage, antique, or vintage-inspired decorations are encouraged, but all bikes are welcome!

Tweed Ride Food

Don’t forget to pack a picnic! We will stop at the Kansas City Museum for a refreshing pause, live music, and prizes. Bring a blanket and lunch.

 The Route

Our route will pass through one of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods of turn-of-the-century Kansas City with regrouping locations allowing for fine refreshment. The length of our journey will be approximately five miles and at a speed of the most casual nature. This is about style not speed, elegance not exertion. This is to be considered a family affair to be enjoyed by the young and old alike.  We encourage you to bring your own picnic fare enjoy at a designated stop along the route. We are considering a prize for the most creatively clever picnic portage contraption!

Most of the route is car-free, but there will be some portions in mixed traffic on quiet residential streets.
