Vintage Threads and Treads, Round 2

If you missed your first chance to snag some vintage clothing and/or bikes for the upcoming Tweed Ride (happening on November 2nd), you’ll get another opportunity this Friday, October 24th, from 6-9pm at VéloCity. This is the second of two happy hours we are hosting in collaboration with Dandies & Quaintrelles (organizers of the annual Tweed and Seersucker Rides) and Del Ray’s own Amalgamated vintage clothing.

Any interested outside bike vendors that have some vintage bikes to sell should email mike.pattisall@velocitycoop.org for more information.

Join VéloCity and the City of Alexandria for Bike Lights!

Update: The location switched from King Street to Braddock Road.

A big part of safe cycling is having good lights to keep you visible in the wee hours. Don’t have any? Then you’re in luck! The City of Alexandria is going to be handing them out at the Braddock Road Metro station next Wednesday, October 22nd from 430pm to 6pm. Some Véloteers will be on hand to do some basic bike maintenance, so come grab a light and get your ride fixed up!

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Vintage Threads and Treads happy hour the next two Fridays (10/17 and 10/24) from 6pm to 9pm. This is a great chance to come down and find some vintage clothing and/or bikes for the upcoming Tweed Ride on November 2nd. The happy hour is happening in collaboration with Dandies & Quaintrelles (organizers of the annual Tweed and Seersucker Rides) and Del Ray’s own Amalgamated vintage clothing.

If you want a better sense of what all goes down on the Tweed Ride, you can find some photos on Flickr here. To make sure we have enough vintage bikes on hand to feed your need for tweed, we are inviting vendors to come and sell their own bikes (among them The Old Bike Shop in Arlington). Any interested outside bike vendors should email mike.pattisall@velocitycoop.org for more information.

Just to entice you even further, we’ll have some adult beverages and snacks on hand. Stop by and say hi (even if you’ve got all the tweed your closet can handle).
