Ballard Tweed Ride

Welcome to the Ballard Tweed Ride

The Ballard Historical Society is proud to present the 4th Annual Ballard Tweed Ride taking place Saturday, October 7, 2023. We’ll be busting out our bikes and best vintage tweeds for a lovely fall ride from the Ballard Bell Tower to Golden Gardens. We’ll gather for a photo together at the tower starting about 9:45am. Please fill out a hold harmless agreement and pack a cup and saucer. Promptly at 10:00am, we’ll depart on a leisurely bike ride to the beautiful shores at Golden Gardens. There we’ll enjoy a delightful tea party & take in the sea breeze. After a spell, we’ll meander back into downtown Ballard and an optional bite, availability permitting, at Hattie’s Hat. The Ballard Tweed Ride route can be seen via the red line on the map below, or for an interactive (expandable) version, click here.

A $10-15 donation is kindly requested for event participation, as well as riders’ signature on a hold harmless document. Donations cover our Golden Gardens shelter rental fee & tea party viands. You can donate via our PayPal page.
