This past weekend was the third-annual Herringbone Tweed Ride here in Burlington, VT. We had an awesome gang again this year composed of friends both old and new; about 30 of us total. The weather was magical. We’ve been having an abnormally warm fall here in Vermont, and this was probably the last warm weekend we’ll have as it’s been in the 40s all week here. What better way to welcome winter than crawling around town, enjoying the foliage, the company of friends and learning a bit about bicycling culture in Burlington? Scroll through the photos below and be sure to check Facebook for the album! Tag away.
The ride met up at Maglianero for coffee, tea and such. It was great to see everyone looking so dapper.
Liam was riding his Geekhouse ‘cross bike and his son Milo came along for the ride.
Bill’s ride, equipped with wine.
Luis Vivanco, sharing his extensive knowledge of cycling history in the Queen City.
The ride continued from City Hall Park as we paraded up Church Street.
Behind me is Ben & Jerry’s – the former location of a bike shop in the late 1800s.
Did I mention it was a beautiful day?
And into the woods we went.
Walking through the woods up to Overlook Tower. It’s usually locked this time of year, but if you’re a special key holder (thanks Hunt) you can access it anytime.
Hunt and I had our touring rigs out.
There were all sorts of great footwear choices being made. Here’s Colin’s feet.
Hunt is hyped, as always.
A photo stop was mandatory.
We ended up at Arts Riot, drank and were welcomed with free leftovers from an event that had just ended. Wasn’t this just the best day?
