The 2013 Cincinnati Tweed Ride
Saturday, November 16, 2013, 4pm
It’s time to head down to the thrift store - an old-fashioned aesthetic is a must for this ride! Join us as we sally forth across town simply because it promises to be a jolly good time!
Possible attire includes newsboy caps, bow ties, tweed jackets, knickers, wool skirts, handlebar mustaches, pipes, anything argyle, anything vintage, etc. The chaps will be dapper and the lasses will be snappy!
We will be awarding prizes for the following categories:
- Best Male Attire
- Best Female Attire
- Best Mustache
- Best Hat
Everyone is eligible for every category!
This will be a slow-paced, flat ride, approximately 3 miles long (great for beginners!). Meet at the National Steamboat Monument at E. Mehring Way and Broadway St.
A celebration of fall, tweed, bikes, and Cincinnati.
- The Right Angle is the Best Angle
Always slow down and cross streetcar tracks at a 60 to 90 degree angle. Crossing incorrectly can result in your front tire sliding on the rail or geting stuck in the gap next to the rail, which can cause you to fall from your bicycle.
- 4 Local Trails Get New Mile Markers
Four paved trails will receive new mile markers this week, helping first responders locate injured trail users more quickly.
- Cincinnati Installs Bicycle-Friendly Thermal Traffic Sensor
The City of Cincinnati has launched a pilot project that will utilize a thermal traffic sensor to detect motorists and bicyclists at a Clifton intersection.
- Updated Bicycle Network Map
The Bicycle Transportation Program has updated the map of existing bicycle facilities within the City. The map shows the location of existing bicycle facilities such as bike lanes, sharrows, and shared-use paths.
- Green Lanes On Central Parkway
A special bright green treatment is used in high-traffic areas where motorists turning onto or off of Central Parkway cross over the path of the new bicycle lanes.
