Albany Tweed Ride 2013

Cheerio.

We stopped by Washington Park on Sunday for the second Albany Tweed Ride. It's pretty much what it sounds like -- people dressed in civilized attire, pedaling their way around town. This year the ride started at All Good Bakers on Delaware Ave, headed over to the Hudson River Coffee House on Quail, then into Washington Park for a stop, and then on to the Olde English for lunch.

It was a beautiful day, and there were lots of smiles. Here's a handful of pics from ride's stop in Washington Park...

And here's a nice photoset from the ride by Paul Sesink Clee.

Splendid!

By jove what temperature was it that day?
Never heard of the Old English.
What kind of food does that place have?

The only thing the Albany Tweed Ride needs to transport us back to the 1890's are a few ordinaries.

So sad to have missed this. But it looks like a lot of fun was had by all parties! Glad to see it is turning into a springtime tradition.

Not a single penny farthing?? Unacceptable.

Thank you, AOA, for continuing to cover our little ride. & thank you to the 42 riders who came along- it wouldn't have been such fun without you!

The morning was very cool, but by noon it was rather warm in the sun. We are in the process of collecting photos (and, I heard a rumor, video) and will be posting it to the website, soon. Ta!

awesome

I was born in albany in 1934.

It was nice to see your photos.
It has been 50 + years since I have been there, but

Thank you

I was very negative about the road diet when it was announced but I really love it and am excited to see it continue all the way to Lark. I eat my words!
