The Chainlink

The Chicago Outfit, the travelling delegation of the BBC has been attending this fine event for two years now so we can highly recommend it as a pleasantly diverting bummel Way Down South in Central Indiana.

Do you yearn for a leisurely alternative to the pell-mell pace of the modern bicycling world? Do you occasionally view lycra and stretchy cycling clothes as excessively modern and sterile? Then you are wanted to join the growing ranks of the Indy Tweed Ride!! The Indy Tweed Ride returns you to the days of fantastically slowish and easy-going riding for silly fun. We wear tweed and wool just as the cyclists of old!

Tweed Rides are appearing all over the world, and we have quite a great one here in the Circle City, over 110 riders last year!! In fact, this is the 4th Annual Indy Tweed Ride.
