Kansas City Tweed Ride

November 2 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

In the spirit of “The Golden Age of Bicycles,” BikeWalkKC cordially invites you to attend in the 10th annual Kansas City Tweed Ride! Please join us on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 at Concourse Park in Kansas City, MO for an afternoon of sophisticated social revelry upon the most marvelous machines ever devised. Tally-ho!

Celebrate the Historic Northeast neighborhoods with us! We will congregate at the Colonnade at the intersection of St. John Avenue and Gladstone Blvd. at 10:30 a.m., with the ride to commence at approximately 11:30 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

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

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 return to the Colonnade for a refreshing pause, live music, and prizes. Bring a blanket and lunch.

The Route

Our 5 mile route will meander through leafy Cliff Drive and the beautiful Historic Northeast neighborhoods of 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.
