KANSAS CITY, Missouri — The fifth annual Kansas City Tweed Ride is right around the corner.

The Tweed Ride is a casual, historical bike ride through the Historic Northeast. The ride takes place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at beginning at St John Avenue and Gladstone Boulevard.

All individuals participating in the event are encouraged to dress in their finest vintage cycling attire, from houndstooth blazers to argyle socks, and hop on their bicycles to celebrate cycling, history and community. Registration is closed for this event.

Riders and their bicycles will have the opportunity to be judged and awarded prizes based on appearance, authenticity, originality, and creativity. The KC Tweed Ride is a family-friendly event where, each year, dozens of families from the historic Northeast neighborhoods bring their kids on trikes and trailers and enjoy riding with their friends and neighbors.

This year’s route will pass through on the oldest and most historic neighborhoods of turn-of-the-century Kansas City. Much of the ride takes place on Cliff Drive, one of Kansas City’s most well-known and valued scenic byways. The length of the ride is about seven miles and at a very leisurely place.

The event is sponsored by: KCMO Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund, Velo +, Local Pig, Mattie Rhodes Center, Jane Lampo, Eleos Coffee, Historic Kansas City, Bike to You, Shipley Communications, CartwheelKC, the KC Center for the Ink and Paper Arts, and Lucky Baby Tea Co.
