Knickerbocker pants, English bikes, and mustachioed gentlemen aplenty-it must be a Tweed Ride! A little rain didn’t stop a group of dapper and dandy bicyclists from having some old-timey fun during the last ‘Tweed, Moxie, and Mustaches” ride.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (METRO) and Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange (C.I.C.L.E.) sponsored the bicycle Tweed Ride that took the jaunty group of dashing chaps and lasses up the Blue Line and on a leisurely ride to The Los Angeles Heritage Square Museum, a living history museum that has a robust collection of Southern California Victorian homes. They literally rode down memory lane, passing by grand old buildings that narrowly avoided the wrecking ball before being relocated to this site. The aged patina and intricate details of the historic homes made the perfect backdrop for epic instagram snaps, #nofilter needed. Afterwards, the group gathered at the large communal tables of Verdugo LA’s patio to enjoy some craft cocktails and discuss the next tweed ride.
