Dozens of people in San Luis Obispo looked more like a blast from the past as they biked through the city Sunday.
It was all part of the first SLO Tweed Ride. Participants donned their traditional early 20th century attire, complete with knickers, hats and handlebar mustaches. The event is also part of Ride Share Bike Month and organizers hope it will encourage people to get around on two wheels instead of four.
"They're all free community events, so anyone can participate, we're really hoping to just get people out on a bike," said Kelsey Greer, who helped organize the event.
The group stopped at Triangle Park for live music, food and lawn games. Sunday's ride was inspired by the annual tweed rides that started in London, and have since spread to Portland and New York.
