The Tweed, Moxie & Mustache Ride
A reunion of wool, bare knees, slanted caps and facial hair - the Tweed, Moxie & Mustache Ride awaits you on Saturday, November 21st, hosted by C.I.C.L.E. Chaps and dames will enjoy this cheeky ride through the Art Deco highlights of Downtown Los Angeles.
Uniting at Union Station as the those in the 1920’s would have, we will ride in our finest garb through the oldest streets of our fine city and arrive at Royal Claytons English Pub, a gin mill of sorts, to have some whoopee and award prizes to our contest superlatives.
We’ll meet at Union Station in front of the south courtyard and conclude with an option to stay for a post-ride hooch (aka adult beverage) at Royal Claytons Pub.
This ride is the bee’s knees!

Now what am I going to wear? It had better be smashingly good because there is no way I am winning a graceful mount/dismount award nor will I be able to grow a mustache. And which bike do I ride the Pashley or the Raleigh?
