On St. Patrick’s Day, following Lexington’s early-afternoon parade, more than a hundred bicyclists gathered downtown for the annual Tweed Ride. They had a while to socialize and get old-fashioned, black-and-white photos taken, and then they all left for a leisurely bike stroll around downtown. And there were prizes too, apparently, for Most Dapper Chap, Most Dandy Lass, Most Snappy Steed, and Best Moustachio.

I’ve heard that they all stopped for a group photo on the steps of the Carnegie Center, and that the photo is online somewhere, but I can’t find it. If I do, I’ll let you know.

A.J. and I were really tempted to participate in this year’s Tweed Ride, but we were at the antiques and car show earlier in the day and just made it back downtown in time to get some photos but not with enough time to change clothes and get our bikes out. We’re already planning our tweedy attire for next year’s event.
