Tweed Ride Rolls On In The Rain: Our Route

The Tweed Ride today and Tweed 2 tomorrow will roll even in the rain!

One word for riding in the rain: fenders! I just wish my bikergo had them but inventer Sascher is still working on them!

Meet 5:30pm Ventura Beach Promenade at California Street.

Start our First Friday ArtRide with a visit to the Artists Union Gallery.

Ride off into the sunset about 6pm. Your bike needs lights for this ride! Rain will determine our route.

If it’s not pouring, we’ll take the beach bike path around Surfer’s Point and along the Ventura River to Main. We’ll turn left at Ventura Avenue to visit a swarm of westside galleries if the weather holds.

If it’s raining, we’ll go straight to Bell Arts for “No War Stories – A Soldier Returns to Vietnam” with Moses Mora who will share his perceptions of the country forty years after he was there as a soldier as it is today, post war – a place of peace, progress and development  with photos of Vietnam on display by Raya Hayes-Mora.

Also near Bell Arts is VITA ART CENTER showing “The Games People Play” featuring work by Jennifer Guernsey, Amy Schneider, & Jill Shanbrom who produced a series of collaborative works, each piece based on a childhood game.

From the Westside, we’ll ride back to Main which we will cruise with possible stops at Red Brick and CSUCI galleries, then roll up Main to Ash where those of us who will cycle in Saturday night’s “Saints and Sinners” Fashion and Variety Show will rehearse for our part.

Next we’ll ride to the galleries on Laurel where we will enjoy beer from Anacapa Brewery (bring money to donate and your own cup please!), to hear Dew Wat’s Rite, and attend the closing reception at the Laurel Gallery for A Month with the Karen: A People’s Struggle Told Through the Eyes of a Missionary Photographs by Gordon Griffith.

On the way over there, some of us will stop at Mackenzie’s to pick up fish tacos and other culinary delights–there may even be 2 for 1 or other discounts for those who show in TWEED!
