So, finally the clouds parted – the sun was shining and the temperature wasn’t bone chilling. This past Saturday was our winter Tweed ride which was a fantastic success. I’m guessing there were close to forty riders eagerly wanting to get back on their bikes. Prior to the Tweed ride, I hadn’t ridden my bike in five days b/c of the ice still coating the side streets of where I live.
Beginning at Cup o’ Joe in the Short North we then hit off to Franklinton Cycle Works. We hung out, I took more photos, and had coffee and fruit that was donated by Green Bean Delivery. On to German Village we rode. Every Tweed ride, we have a group photo at Schiller Park. This group photo was one of my favorites taken b/c of the snow covered grounds. It set a nice tone to our ride and of course, the picture.
Thanks to everyone who joined in on the ride. I think everyone had a wonderful time. One of the things I absolutely love about bikes and social bike rides is how it brings people together and how it creates friendships. I notice that immediately and it puts a smile on my face.
Another Tweed ride will happen in the Spring so stay tuned. Enjoy the photos
Be safe and keep riding.
