Grand Rapids Tweed Ride (and other things)

September 8, 2009 at 4:54 pm 14 comments

Well, fall is fast approaching. And what better way to celebrate the cooler weather and lack of sweating than with a slow paced bike ride about this beautiful city.

So, grab your wool skirts and herringbone and bow ties and head on out here to have a grand time!

The ride will begin at The Winchester and saunter onward throughout this fair city, ending (eventually) at The Hopcat for drinks and general merriment.  All of this takes place on Saturday, October 3rd at 4:00 PM.

Invite your friends! Invite yourself! It’s going to be awesome!

In other, less bikey news, The Cupcakerator is currently in contention to become a T Shirt! And we need your help!!  If you would be so kind as to venture over to Shirtprize and cast your vote for my design, I would be eternally thankful.  And if you could convince some friends to do the same….I just may have to prepare something special.

I’ve never won anything like this before so it would be phenomenal to do well at all.  I’m working on my doodles to incorporate a nice old fashioned bike for my boy Cuppie.  Cross your fingers for me! And don’t forget to come out for the Tweed Ride!

    Yay for tweed rides! I look forward to seeing pictures afterward. Chicago’s tweed ride is this Saturday.

    I voted for the cupcakerator 🙂

    That’s awesome! Thank you!

    The photos will be numerous. I love seeing the pictures you post of the Chicago ones. Ours will be just a little smaller 🙂

    Any shirt with a cupcake on it is a winner to me! I’ll be voting. And good luck with the ride!

    Hey! First of all, thanks for reading my blog! Then, hello fellow Grand Rapidian! I’m also a transplant from the east side of the state – from Redford.

    I really appreciate the invitation to the Tweed Ride. I’ve been reading about the Chicago rides at Let’s Go Ride a Bike, and I’ve been jealous that I couldn’t go. Now I can!

    At least, I hope to. October 3 is my hubby’s b-day, so it might not happen. But I really want to come out for a ride in my euro-best outfit and to meet more cyclists in GR.

    Good luck in the t-shirt contest!

      I hope you guys can make it out! It’s not going to be a long ride at all. Just a slow-paced cruise around town with a pit stop or two for photo ops. If anything, I’m nervous people won’t think it’s long enough since I’ve never planned anything like this before!

    Hey, the 4th is a Sunday! So Saturday the 3rd or Sunday the 4th?

      My Bad!!! The 3rd! I’ll change it in the post. So, it’s on Saturday.

    Looks like we have at least 3 coming tomorrow. We’ll meet y’all at the Winchester. We’re hoping to get there by 3pm just to warm up a bit. Looks like the weather’s gonna’ suck but tally ho! Contact me off-list if anything changes…
