Train Trip to SLO Tweed Ride May 15Posted: May 10, 2011
In case you don’t know, on a Tweed Ride cyclists are expected to dress in traditional early 20th century attire (tweed, wool, knickers, hats, moustaches, oxfords, etc). Any bicycle is acceptable for the ride, but classic vintage bicycles are highly encouraged and all efforts to make the ride into a time warp are appreciated. Some Tweed Rides even prohibit cyclists in modern attire like lycra and jeans.
If you’re traveling from points south, arrive in grand style with other cyclists by train!
Book at least 3 days in advance through www.SantaBarbaraCarFree.org to receive a 20% discount on your Surfliner fare! You must also reserve a spot for your bike, though friends in SLO will be providing a few bikes.
Return trip is the Starlight train 11 leaving SLO at 3:20PM, arriving at 6:17PM in SB.

See photos from our Leprechaun and Tweed Rides March 2011 night (the day ride tended toward leprechauns since we were in the St Patricks Day Parade). We did Tweed Rides in February 2010 but they were basically rained out so while some folks did ride in the rain, we didn’t get any photos.
