Bike Friendly Oak Cliff says

The legendary Tweed Ride will roll out of the main entrance of Fair Park at high noon, 12:00pm on the first SUNDAY of December! Traffic will naturally pause, watching in disbelief as happy cyclists pass by pedaling through the crisp winter air. The entire group will be wearing charming tweed outfits, like a collective art installation transporting everyone involved to a more beautiful time and place.

The pace is slow enough for anyone to keep up, so dust off your cruiser, let your street bike enjoy the relaxing pace, invite your sweet old neighbor and bring the kids. You'll cruise through downtown in one enormous group, making friends and savoring the sights for about 45 minutes pedaling at a slow to moderate pace with 2 breaks for photos and regrouping. Then we'll end all together at a big group picnic with a live band, yard games, and hot cider! We'll have the neighborhood vs neighborhood tug of war competition, and three legged races!

The halfway point is the Dallas Museum of Art, so if you'e running late, meet us at the south side of the DMA at 12:30.

This is your chance to get friends and family on bicycles together for a day full of smiles, whether they normally ride or not!

Don't own a bike? There are plenty of shops around town to rent a bike from for the day, including a bike rental kiosk at Fair Park. And our starting location, Fair Park Station, is relatively easy to get to via public transportation, so consider planning your day to include an adventure on the DART train, local busses, or organize a group ride from your neighborhood to the starting point then home again.

There is no cost to join the ride! Bring your own picnic, pack extra to share with new friends, and bring cash to buy hot cider at the picnic site. Proceeds from the cider sales will support the community efforts of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff.

...And hopefully the later date will bring cooler weather so this time we can really break out the wooly winter fabrics!! Stay tuned to this page for outfit ideas and group surveys to determine aspects of the route.

This year's ride leader is Tracy Popken Springer, so send her a message if you'd like to volunteer to help, or have questions and suggestions.
