The Herringbone Portraits

Herringbone Tweed Ride Burlington VT

Herringbone Tweed Ride Burlington VT

photos: Morganne

For the past month or so, I’ve been helping our friend Hank Stokes plan out his vision for Burlington’s first tweed ride and I gotta say, it turned out even better than I’d expected! We started off at Maglianero Cafe for coffee and biscuits at 10 am on Saturday morning and departed around 11 for a slow-paced, fun-filled tour of Burlington.

We toured the scenic routes and stopped along the way for a history lesson from Hank’s parents on General Stannard, a climb to the top of Overlook tower, portraits from Morganne and refreshments at The Old Spokes Home, a best mount/dismount contest, awarded the best dressed lad/lass, and finished at Ye Olde North Ender for Shopping Bag Sizzlers and pints.

Have a look at our Facebook page for the whole album of portraits that Morganne shot. If you’d like a hi-res copy just shoot us an email:

Thanks to everyone for coming out and looking so good. Also, thanks to Hank and to Hunt for his great MC work. See ya’ll next week at the Monster Mash 2!
