Mobile, AL Tweed Ride

Today Mobilians on Bikes hosted it’s first tweed ride and it was a blast!  Winter on the Gulf Coast is a perfect time of year for wearing tweed and getting on your bike for a sophisticated and relaxing ride about town.  Our two-wheeled jaunt started off from a neighborhood cafe and meandered through a couple scenic neighborhoods before a midway stop at the local independent movie theatre.  Once there we saw a matinee of “The King’s Speech.”  The movie was excellent and I highly suggest it.  After the movie we cruised over to a local pub for merrymaking with good drink and company.  The weather was beautiful, the riders looked very elegant and we showed the town that you can use your bike for urban transportation even when dressed up.  We’ll definitely do this again.
