Are you ready for the 2016 Seersucker Social?

The Seersucker Social returns to DC this spring and, this time, the post-ride picnic is free to all!

We’ve created another marvelous scenic route through the district. We scouted the city for the perfect post ride picnic location. We’re ready for a Saturday in seersucker! Are you?

We’re predicting a perfect forecast for our warm weather celebration of classic style and classy rides. Assemble your vintage look, hop on your bike and meet up with everyone for a sweet spring-time ride in our nations capital.

The start and finish locations are both in Northwest. We will meet at 11am and ride at 12pm. At our usual leisurely pace, the 10 mile ride should end at our secret picnic location within 2 hours. That’s all we can reveal at this point. Secrets must be kept! On Friday June 17, we’ll e-mail you our meeting location.

We’ve arranged for all the important ingredients for a picture perfect picnic. We’ll have blankets, lawn games and jazz-age music waiting for your arrival.

Bring your own picnic, or buy one of ours and have it ready for you at our secret picnic spot. If you took part in last year’s Tweed Ride you might remember the delicious rest stop treats. This year’s baskets are made by the same wonderful and creative mastermind. Here’s what your basket will include:

New Orleans Style Muffuletta Sandwich
Layer Upon Layer of Flavor!
Smoked mushrooms, grilled marinated eggplant, fire roasted red peppers, fresh greens, pickled carrot ribbons, caramelized onions, and olive tapenade layered inside of scratch made peasant bread. 
**FOR THE CARNIVOROUS TYPE: option to add creole smoked andouille sausage to your sandwich**  
 
Kale, Jalapeño, and  Citrus Salad
Kale, seeded jalapeños, seasonal citrus, and goat cheese tossed in a lemon tahini vinaigrette. 
 
Grown-Up “Capri Sun”
A Bossed Up Childhood Throwback

Baskets are limited, so if you want in on this deliciousness, get on it ASAP! We’re closing basket pre-reservations on June 12, and no baskets will be available for on-the-spot sale.

Save the date and sort out your sartorial situation for our spring ride and social. In addition to our leisurely ride through the city, our post-ride picnic this year will be BYOP (bring your own picnic) and free to all!

Visit our Facebook page often for more updates (that pesky algorithm makes our posts appear less often on your feed). We’re also on Twitter and Instagram! Stay turned for more details in the coming weeks.

The day’s weather began with dreary rain clouds but cleared to offer picture perfect conditions. It was truly one of our best afternoon rides around some of our city’s finest sights. We’ve seen some stunning images from the day. Upload your favorite shots to our Flickr group photo pool! We love sharing your best photos in our promotions for future rides!
