2014 LA Tweed Ride

 

A little something from the past…we definitely need to get the bikes refurbished and do it again- it’s been too long. 🙂

LA Tweed Ride wrap-up: If our 1890s sisters can ride for ten miles in 90 degree heat, up hill and dale for ten miles on a forty pound steel frame bicycle with a dubious braking system and huge wheels, properly corseted and dressed, then so can I…and I did. Of course I didn’t have to go home and milk the cows and feed the masses, I got to rest with a book and a movie!

Yesterday wasn’t a race, it was to prove a point. Exercise, polite manners, and dressing well can exist in LA. I didn’t finish first, but somewhere in the middle. The only swear words I heard ALL day were from me, (sorry, Dad) and that was when I didn’t think I would make it up one of those hills and was being passed up by those youngsters in their aluminum 30 speed bikes! 🙂
