Our good friends over at T.B.A.G. are putting on a fine little group ride this Friday. I would highly recommend this if you are in the greater Phoenix area. They are hitting up some quality establishments with some good distances between them. I won’t be there since i am committed to another little ride this weekend. But something tells me that they might be having a little bit more fun than me at 2am Sunday morning. If anybody heads out there and represents DC, don’t forget to throw up some pics on our new Facebook page.
Tempe Bicycle Action Group will host a Social gathering of Cyclists this Third Friday, the 18th of February .
Don your most dapper casuals for the return of the Tweed Ride, an Evening Adventure. Especially those of you who are stuck in town while your significant other races mountain bikes in the desert in the dark this weekend; dress up like a 19th century dandy and come get drunk with us.
The meeting place will be Tempe Beach Park at Rio Salado & Mill Avenue at 7:30pm. We’ll have a wee tour of Mill Ave and begin our evening at Robbie Fox’s Public House. Robbie & Mike have offered draughts to our group at a Dollar off.
From there we’ll turn our wheels t’ward Boulders On Broadway, one of Tempe’s most bicycle-friendly restaurants where will also enjoy special pricing on the finest ales.
Then, for those brave and bold, a fair steeple-chase to South Scottsdale where we shall arrive at last upon the British Open Pub for a discounted pint and a basket of English Wallys. Of course, there may be unofficial stops as the night goes on. Come ride with us as long as you please.
Proper attire is most important; may we suggest your favorite woolens – skirts, capes, and shawls for the ladies and jackets, vests, caps, and of course knickers for the gents.
So buff your leather, brush your corduroy, and hitch your chequered stockings… but remember TWEED is KING!
