More than 400 bicyclists leisurely rode the streets of Chico for the sixth annual Tweed Ride.

It began at 11 a.m., Sunday at Bidwell Mansion and ended at the five-mile recreational area.

Once bicyclists rode three miles in Chico they were treated to a nice picnic on a beautiful Sunday.

We spoke to an organizer of the event who says that it's a travel back in time.

“So probably about 10-years ago these tweed rides started mostly throughout the world but in England and it’s a celebration of vintage bikes and vintage clothing and so you just bring those together and it’s a social ride,” said Craig Almaguer, tweed ride organizer.

The event ended at 3 p.m., Saturday.
