The 6th annual DC Tweed Ride; led and organized by Dandies and Quaintrelles, kicked off in full force. In the past, it might’ve been frowned upon showing up on nothing less than a vintage bicycle with a tobacco pipe or flask. The meeting point was held in secrecy. The location was not announced until Friday. After word got out, a flash mob of over 450+ riders met at Malcolm X Park. The fellas traded in their brunch denim and donned their finest Tweed “Plus-fours” with the newsboy caps to match. Ladies didn’t disappoint either, adding to that timeless vibe from Cloche hats to vintage pedal bikes with baskets for the baguettes.
Let’s be real. In Washington D.C., we like to do stuff. Brunch has become a must and on any given Sunday you can get caught in a random pillow fight on the National Mall. D.C. has become a town that has to do things in mass, and we're not talking Sunday either.
