Boston Tweed Ride Preparations

Massachusetts cycle chic

Massachusetts has a long history of both bicycle manufacturing and chic tweedy cycling, as evidenced by this vintage bicycle poster from Northampton, MA.

I'm very excited for our Boston Tweed Ride on Sunday October 4th, 2PM and am working on outfits for myself and my husband. Have you got yours? Will I see you Sunday afternoon?
I hope so!

I think so, but not 100% certain. I am working on outfits as well. I already have a hat and tweed jacket. Not sure about skirt, boots and husband's clothing. Hopefully my DL-1 will be all ready and beautified for this ride.

Wish I could be there!

Are you channelling your inner Katharine Hepburn?

I'm thinking of her when she was a young woman like you, in a tweed jacket and skirt, though she cycled almost until she died.

This sounds like such fun!

Lagatta, you know me too well already! Yes, I am channelling Katharine Hepburn, though I was even going to go so far as tweed trousers. I should study up on Katharine phrases and cadence, that would be perfect.
