Tweed Ride @ Meet in Monument Square
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm
Tweed Ride @ Meet in Monument Square | Portland | Maine | United States

Dress up in your best old-timey attire and climb on your bike for a leisurely ride through downtown Portland, the Back Cove and Deering Oaks Park! The ride is a slow pace (because bystanders are going to want to see this!) and there aren’t a lot of hills either.
This year the Tweed Ride is again partnering with the Gaslight League, an organization of supporters of Portland’s Victoria Mansion, in putting on this year’s Tweed Ride. After the usual ride through downtown Portland and pictures in Deering Oaks Park, we will proceed to the Victoria Mansion on Danforth Street, where riders will be greeted with a reception of hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks and snacks and free tours of the Mansion. Please join us!
