Eugene Tweed Ride 1/16/10

by Lesli Larson

On Saturday, I'll be joining friends for the third Eugene Tweed ride. Here's my ride report from the Spring 2009 edition. For novice participants, I'm setting aside a few garments for your Saturday ensemble. Since the forecast calls for rain, I'm suggesting you layer with a Hilltrek ventile cycling jacket in lieu of the more traditional, heavy overcoat. For dryer conditions, substitute a Huckecote tweed shooting jacket: the Clunie for ladies or the Redford for gents (matching caps and breeks available).

The ride sounds like fun. I'm itching to get on my bike, but there is far too much ice on the streets in Minnesota (at least in my area) to consider a ride. That said, cross country skiing is good due to an abundance of snow this season.

128 days until the Lake Pepin 3 Speed Tour!
