Time to dust those knickers off because the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club’s annual Tweed Ride is upon us. The oldest and largest shuffleboard club will celebrate 10 years of tradition and old-timey threads on Jan. 22, 2022.

Next month's costumed bicycle tour runs from about 2 p.m.-8 p.m., starting with tea and scones and ending with a group photo and afterparty at the shuffleboard club— complete with live music provided by “good old fashioned stompy jazz” band Junco Royals. And yes, there will be swing dancing.

The club expects 450 participants for 2022's Tweed Ride, which  will be guided by a safety team and the St. Petersburg Police Department. Although there is no exact route planned, waterfront views of Mirror Lake and Tampa Bay are expected.

Tickets will be sold through the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club’s website, although they aren’t on sale yet. Keep up with its Facebook and Instagram to see when tickets are available. Alongside access to the ride and live music, tickets include a gourmet boxed lunch as well, which will be provided to guests after the ride.
