Cycle Right! Friday Feb 17th 2012

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/235438216544296/

Cycle Right! Invites YOU (and all of your friends) on a bike ride to promote cycling rights and motor-user awareness.

WHY SHOULD I COME?
Cyclists are an integral and growing part of our community. Unfortunately, this fun and sustainable mode of transportation can be dangerous in a city built for cars. Our event aims at education and raising awareness for bicycle users so less of us get hurt or even killed by cars. The more of us show up, the better.

It will also be FUN!

There will be a RAFFLE and FOOD TRUCKS!

Bring your helmet, if you have one. But above all else, this event is about education, making a statement, and raising awareness!

Tempe Tweed Ride presented by TBAG 3rd Fridays

Once again, a third Friday is upon us!

Tempe Bicycle Action Group will host another Social gathering of Bicycles this Third Friday of February.

Don your most dapper casuals for the Valley’s First Tweed Ride, commencing at seven o’clock in the evening from Tempe Beach Park at Rio Salado & Mill Avenue. We’ll have a jaunt up and about south Scottsdale and finish with a pint at the British Open Pub.

Proper attire is requested; may we suggest your favorite woolens – skirts, capes, and shawls for the ladies and jackets, bow ties, sweater vests, caps, and of course knickers for the gents. Houndstooth, corduroy, and argyle are welcome… but TWEED is KING!

I dare say one shan’t have too difficult a time finding ideas for this fashionable event, but here are a few places you might begin:
Catcubed | A Tweed Primer
Dashing Tweeds blog
London Fixed Gear and Single-Speed Tweed Ride 2009-01-24 Sat – The Tweed Run I
Divine Caroline “I Feel the Need … The Need For Tweed”

Or how about some suggestions for haberdashers and clothiers? Well, Sunset Clothing Xchange, right in front of Bike Saviours might be a place to start. Also, Buffalo Exchange, Salvation Army and Goodwill are likely to have an article or two befitting the occasion. Many of these donate a portion of their proceeds to charities and hire an all volunteer staff. And what is greener than recycled clothing?
