A Day at the Races Social Ride

San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
It's time to bust out your fanciest duds, because the biggest race of the summer is here and you're invited! On July 13, we're dressing up for a fashionable and fun ride to the Brompton US Championship. We want a great showing of spectators to cheer on participants in this one-of-a-kind sporting event that will be drawing riders from all over the country.
Seersucker, Tweed, Queen of England fancy hats, and any other spiffy attire suitable for "A Day at the Races" is highly encouraged-- we'll be giving out a prize for the best dressed participant!
We'll ride from the shop in proper fashion en masse, and cycle alongside the majestic Anacostia Riverwalk Trail at an enjoyable pace. Awaiting you will be a dashing, up-scale, derby-like setting, complete with picnic and entertainment.
What entertainment would that be? A folding bicycle race, obstacle course, displays from sponsors and chances for you to win prizes from Cleverhood and Abus among others!
If you think you'll get a bit peckish, we'll have tasty food options. The Amorini Panini food truck will be on hand as well as a popsicle cart from @TeaPopsCompany. Consider bringing some cash to enjoy a picnic while you watch the racers streak by.
Register right away! And, do RSVP to our facebook invite so that you can share with friends.
