We lucked out Dandies! A very well dressed crowd, dry weather and cooling evening temperatures made for a delightful ride. The setting sun provided spectacular lighting for snapping shutters and keen eyes. We’ve created a space for sharing photos from this past Saturday with the idea that photos can be used to promote future D&Q events! The above photo was captured by Lori Crandall of the Fidgety Feet Dance Group. The photo below was captured by Idit Knaan.

More than 450 of us braved the gloomy early morning weather and met at Malcolm X Park on Sunday to kick off the 6th Annual Tweed Ride. By noon, the sun was out and the winds had gone from gale force to slightly less than gale force. Shortly after 1 pm, we hit the road and had one for our most enjoyable rides on what turned out to be yet another beautiful fall day.

We’ve already seen a lot of great photos out there on social media. Remember to use #DCTweed on your Facebook/Instagram/Twitter photos so we can see them!

We’d also like to gather all of your great photos in one place. So, upload and share your pictures onto our 2014 DC Tweed Ride Flickr group page—we’ll use the flickr pool to share the news of the time we had, and encourage more to join us in the future. Select photos will be used in D&Q blog posts and e-mails for future events!
