We're counting down the final hours before the Seersucker Social Bike Ride and Lawn Party and I hope that everyone has managed to find the pieces needed for an elegant and retro-forward summer look. I cannot wait to see the display of fine breezy fashions. With well over 500 registered riders and 400 dashing folks set to enjoy the post ride festivities, Saturday should be one of the most delightful days of the summer.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the northern section of Meridian Hill Park where we will start the ride at the corner of 15th and Euclid Streets. N.W. at 3:30pm. I've provided links to the bike ride waiver forms and directions for you to print and bring along with you on Saturday. There are two sets per page so you can bring extras along to help your registered friends arrive prepared for fun!
There's a slight chance of a passing rain or thunder shower in the D.C. area but it should not threaten plans for our grand day. In the event that we receive a shower in the area of the ride, we may postpone the starting time by an hour. I have positive feelings about the evening overall and the lawn party is schedule to continue despite the possibility of a passing shower. There will be places for refuge on the Hillwood Estate for those not absolutely committed to continuing an uninterrupted match of badminton or croquette.
As promised, there are two routes planned and a separate set of directions for each. The longer route will avoid the concrete urban areas and mostly wind its way through in the shade of trees and amidst cooler temperatures. There were some unavoidable hills at the end of the ride that I encourage folks to tackle with as leisurely a pace as possible. I might even suggest walking for the dandiest of riders. We'll have rejuvenating refreshments waiting for you upon arrival.
We have a limited number of on-line tickets still available for the post ride social at Hillwood! For those riders who have not purchased tickets but can well imagine the jolly good time to be had by all present, I implore you to act without haste!Below are download links to the 2010 Seersucker Social Bike Ride Routes and a waiver form
most eagerly awaiting your arrival tomorrow.
