Will there be tickets available on the day of the event?
Probably. However purchasing in advance helps us plan volunteers, resources, food, drinks, and space to ensure a safe and fun event. Since the party will happen rain or shine, there’s no reason not to buy your tickets now so we know you’re coming!
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Some parking is available in the lot east of the Club, in the street parking spaces around Mirror Lake, or in approved spaces on the west side of the Club near the Bike Co-op. The west lot is shared with the Mirror Lake Condos, so park only in unmarked spaces or you risk being towed. If you can bike to the Club instead of driving, please do so.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The event is for all ages. Cycle Brewing beer will be served by donation, therefore we will be checking IDs at registration.
Will you be serving beer before the ride?
No. We discourage drinking before the ride and absolutely no drinking while you’re riding the route! Bicycles count for DUIs and we will have St. Petersburg Police Department escorts this year for ride safety. Before the ride we will have tea and non-alcoholic beverages.
Can I bring my own cocktails to the Tweed Ride?
The Tweed Ride is the Club’s only fundraiser of the year! Part of the funds we raise come from the donations we receive for Cycle Brewing beer. We ask that for this one day a year, you don’t BYO and instead support the Club via bar donations.
I just want to watch the riders/pop in for a minute to see everyone's cool outfits/come to the after party. Do I have to buy a ticket?
Yes, please. The Tweed Ride is the Club’s only fundraiser of the year! On January 18, 2020, the Club will be closed to anyone who is not a ticketed guest. Take advantage of the Club Member pricing and come party with us!
I want to ride but don't have a bike!
Not to worry! There are several Coast Bike Share hubs very close to the Club! It’s quick and easy to rent from Coast.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
