Flagstaff Tweed Report Part II


I'm still stunned at the reception received by the Spring Tweed this past Monday night. I'm most impressed with the fact that although many of the riders were complete strangers to one another a strong sense of camaraderie prevailed the evening. Just half a block from Mia's cyclist in a spiffy jacket and tie greeted Bob and I at the stop light with a cheerful "Hello Tweeders! You two look great." We returned the compliment and that was pretty much how it went for the rest of the evening.

Was it the bikes? Was it the knickers? The vintage biking caps? The ice cream truck that came out of nowhere? Hmmm. . . .people warmly acknowledging one another and connecting with one another in the spirit of fun. . . .I've said it before, but we wouldn't have had this experience in a car!And this is why I ride.

Looks like fun - I really want to participate in some sort of themed ride. I love the ice cream truck photo also. It's hilarious that there's a sign "Caution - watch for children" and adults on bicycles are lined up at it :)

Hope you don't mind that I placed a link for your blog on mine!
