Recap/Results

Vintage Clothing, patina'd bicycles and great weather this weekend was a 

Maybe The Great Weather may had something to do with the record-turnout for the 5th Annual Des Moines Tweed Ride... or maybe not.

Getting dressed up and riding your bicycle on one of the last warm sunny days in November brought out plenty of vintage clothing, patina'd bicycles and plenty of creativity as hundreds of Tweed adorned cyclists lined 4th street in front of the Royal Mile.

Riders rode to the Capital for a group shot (Thanks Chris Maharry!) and then down the hill to Ichi Bike for a refreshment before returning to the Royal Mile.

Definitely a day to remember!

Tweed Ride

The 5th Annual Des Moines Tweed Ride will gather fashionable cyclists from all around the metro to celebrate cycling in style this Sunday November 9th at the Royal Mile.

Doors open at 10 am for a traditional English lunch of fish & chips, judging will begin at Noon and the ride leaves for the Capitol at 1 PM sharp!

This is a short bike route, in preparation of the ride many have been shopping for tweed, plaid, herringbone and woolen clothing. 


This ride will start at the Royal Mile with stops at the State Capitol for a group picture, then Ichi Bike for refreshments and then ends at Royal Mile.

Rain or shine or snow, many of last year's participants confirmed that nothing will stop them from coming together to celebrate fashion, cycling and party while listening to 1930s ragtime and swing music.

Many wonderful prizes will be along the way. This event is co-sponsored by the Royal Mile,Ichi Bike, Bike Iowa and more sponsors to be announced soon
