I've read about these tweed rides out east where everyone wears tweed or euro style clothes,and usually ride classic bikes.
Does anyone have any info of a ride like that here in Chicago? I read that there will be one.

There sure are! You are a few weeks late for the latest one at the end of August.

There should be another one in a few months.   I think a bonfire is involved.  

Keep an eye on The Chainlink Calender and the British Bicycles Group here for info.  

Usually have the Guy Fawkes ride first Saturday in November, someone should be posting something soon.

Just a bonfire, not a gunpowder something?

Bummer. Ok thanks guys,I'll keep an eye out for it. I'm so for a bonfire! Or a gun powder... haha

The BBC always has an early November ride, usually a winter ride featuring bars with fireplaces and a seersucker summer ride. You just missed it (it rained the entire day).

The Slow Bicycle Society has rides where people dress up a bit, although they aren't really tweed rides. It's Facebook page is more active than the Chainlink page lately. The Kimono ride was on the north side last weekend and there's talk of a winter ride but it's schedule is less predictable than the BBC.

Not exactly in the Chicago area but there is this coming up in less than two weeks.

If one wants to travel a little there is a Tweed in Indy on October 27th.

Some of us in the BBC are planning a trek to Indianapolis for their Tweed Ride Saturday, October 27.  PM me if you'd like details.

Awesome! I believe that is my weekend off.

Is the Cozy Hearth ride still on now that John is taking a break from ride planning? I'd hate to see that one fall by the way side.
