A Tradition Continues

In this year, when we have seen so many of the annual events that define the character of our little city canceled, postponed, or reimagined because of the pandemic, it is heartening to know that one event, now marking its ninth year, is going forward pretty much as it always has: the Hudson Tweed Ride. 

Hudson Tweed Ride 2013
Because cycling, by its very nature, requires social distancing, the Hudson Tweed Ride can happen without much modification. Hosted this year by Lisa Durfee and Keith Nelson, the Hudson Tweed Ride takes place this Sunday, October 25, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. As always, the riders will assemble at Front and Warren streets, in the plaza outside Promenade Hill. This year the route will take riders to the Dr. Oliver Bronson Estate, where, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Historic Hudson is opening the grounds of the historic house for public visitation.
