In the spirit of “The Golden Age of Bicycles,” BikeWalkKC cordially invites you to attend in the ninth annual Kansas City Tweed Ride – Velocipede & Tweed Indeed! Please join us on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at Kessler Park in Kansas City, MO for an afternoon of sophisticated social revelry upon the most marvelous machines ever devised. Tally-ho!

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. Bring the family and dress in your finest turn-of-the-century wools, tweeds, silks and argyles-- there will be prizes for costumes and bicycles!

Tweed Ride Attire
Michelle and Joseph take a bow in her tweedy costumes.Think fashionable vintage street clothing or steampunk. Get creative! Raid the attic, scavenge the thrift shops, dust off the sewing machine – but no spandex, please!

Tweed Ride Bikes
A parade of dapper dressers!
Vintage, antique, or vintage-inspired decorations are encouraged, but all bikes are welcome!

Tweed Ride Food
Ruth Anne enjoys a stylish picnic.
Don’t forget to pack a picnic! We will return to the Colonnade for a refreshing pause, live music, and prizes. Bring a blanket and lunch.

The Route
An leisurely roll through an elegant neighborhood.
Our 5 mile 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. This ride is about style and elegance, not exertion-- we will travel at a leisurely pace.
Most of the route is car-free, but there will be some portions in mixed traffic on quiet residential streets.
