Seersucker sunday

The details are here, the summer "tweed" ride will take place Sunday, June 28.

Here's the itinerary:
9 a.m. - 9:45 - Pre-ride coffee @ Temple II (29th and S Street)
10 a.m. - 10:30 - Meet-up at the Bike Kitchen (between 19th and 20th, on I Street)
10:35ish - West Capitol Steps for pictures

From there the ride heads down Capitol Boulevard towards West Sacramento to view the beginnings of the big changes there, then back across the river to the new river promenade. We'll ride down as far as Broadway, take a left, then another left onto Front Street; go as far as the new R Street Bridge, cross it and go down R Street to 14th, take a left and then a right on Q and head to Fremont Park.

12:15 - Picnic in Fremont Park
2:00 - Farewell cocktail at Shady Lady (14 and R)

Tweed is strongly discouraged since it's going to be hot, so it's advised to wear something light and summery.
My mother made me a seersucker skirt and my sister is loaning me a straw hat. I'll post pictures as soon as they are available.

Remember these rides are all about having fun, looking dapper, meeting new people and hanging out with good friends. So if you don't have the proper attire don't fret, give me a call and we'll jaunt down a thrift store and pick up something smashing!

More information always available at the ever helpful Sacramento tweed blog.
