The blog Dandies and Quaintrelles hosted its first “Tweed Ride” Sunday, in which more than 200 people biked in small groups from H Street Northeast to U Street Northwest dressed in their finest Victorian garb. The blog also arranged for a photographer to take vintage-style portraits of riders, so they could remember how awesome they looked in tweed jackets and frilly shirts.

Although the tweed ride naturally originated in London, other rides have occurred in cities across the U.S., from San Fransicso to Boston. The Washington Post has an article on the D.C.  ride, complete with more photos.
