The Quad Cities “Tweed Ride” is back for a return engagement as bicyclists gather at the Village Theatre in the Village of East Davenport to embark on a leisurely ride along our scenic riverfront. The Two Wheels and Tweed Social Club is pleased to bring this stylish and family friendly event back to our beloved Quad Cities. If you have never witnessed or participated in a “Tweed Ride”, you are in for quite a treat! Modeled after the original London “Tweed Run”, riders have fun reproducing the traditional English attire and spirit of a bygone era. The riders will travel downriver to Credit Island Park where they will enjoy a picnic lunch, live music, and a special Tweed presentation of “Sunday in the Park Alive” by Chuck Oestreich. The ride will conclude with awards for “Most Dapper Gent”, “Most Fashionable Lady”, “Best Vintage Bike”, “Most Creative Bike” and of course the coveted “Best Moustache”.

Back Story: Years ago, bicycle fanatic Tim Nelson stumbled across the London Tweed Run while researching how to make his own cold weather riding gear using thrift store clothing. Today, Tweed “Rides” can be found all over the world and Tim longed to see one in The Quad Cities. You may recognize Tim from his many exploits with the River Benders Cycling Group. Tim can often be seen in his woolen “plus four” knickers, colorful argyle socks, or perhaps even a kilt as his “Big Dummy” model cargo bicycle transports him to the local grocery store, pub, or cycling event. Tim also sits on the Board of Directors for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and is a member of the Quad-Cities Bicycle Club.
