Dandy Tandem

Its been two years since a devastating earthquake rocked Haiti.  Relief efforts continue and in my need for tweed (see previous post) I stumbled upon a fashionable way to lend a hand while fashioning Donegal designs.

Bikes for Haiti is partnering with the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in the area’s first annual Tweed Ride as part of the Fibrefest.

Tweed Ride London
Tweed Rides have been popping up across the US, Australia since the first pedal was pushed in London in 2009.  Riders clad in tweed cycle a short tour  of their fair city and raise money for charity.

Tweed Ride San Francisco
