Our Route

We have drawn up a rough map of the Tweed Ride Route. It is just under 8 miles and includes the Eastern and Western Proms, the Bayside Trail, Deering Oaks Park, and downtown Portland. We mostly avoid some of Portland's longer hills and there will be lots of pauses to take pictures and hydrate with your drink of choice.  See you on Sunday!

Tweed Ride Route

The first ever Tweed Ride

 We learned that the first ever tweed ride happened in London in January 2009. Since then the trend has swept North America with rides in Washington D.C, New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Portland, OR and beyond.
