Snohomish Tweed Ride, Sat 21 Sept

As fall approaches, it’s time for more Tweed Rides in the Northwest again! Seems like we have two Tweed Ride seasons here: March through May (when our own ride occurs), then September through November. So, it’s time for the Snohomish Tweed Ride!

The Snohomish Tweed Ride will happen on Saturday September 21st at 10 am, meeting at Machias Depot at the Machias Centennial Trail. Here are details from their website:

Fancy a cycle? Sport your finest period garb and join us for a jaunt through the countryside. Pause for a picnic (bring your own), enjoy diversions, tea and sweets (our treat!)

We set off from the historic Machias Depot at the Machias Centennial Trail, and tootle along the historic Centennial Trail. Jolly socializing and pastoral scenes offer carefree diversion. Replenish and restore in Snohomish with a spot o’ tea, a bit o’ rest, your own picnic luncheon (BYOC- bring your own cup!)

This year our break for light refreshments and your picnic lunch will be at the Blackman’s Museum in Historic Downtown Snohomish, where the Snohomish Historical Society is allowing us to use their facilities to go back in time for our tea and biscuits.

Gather for the ride back to Machias at 2:30, the tally-ho for the ride back begins at 2:45

Photo Ops~Music~Costume Contest~ ( medals for the most dapper and dandily dressed Ladies & Gents on bicycles!) We much appreciate Victorian, Edwardian, War Era and even Steampunk stylings. (No lycra, jeans or modern garb please!)

Check in begins at 10 am, and we tally ho 11 am.

This ride is a lot of fun! Portland Tweedistas Emee and Shawn attended in 2018. While they are not going this year, maybe you will?
