The Rochester Seersucker Social rides again!
Prepare your seersucker, linen, and other summer fashions. Clean your bike and pump up your tyres. We've a splendid and lazy tour to a few gardens and scenic Rochester neighborhoods.
Our cool spring this year has delayed the prime for magnolias and lilacs to coincide with Rochester Bike Week, so bring your cameras.
10:00 house-made cinnamon buns and muffins, fruit, and coffee, all courtesy of Abundance Cooperative Market
11:00 scenic 12-mile tour to gardens and along Oxford St and other scenic neighborhoods
12:45 picnic and prizes at Wadsworth Square Neighborhood Park, adjacent to Abundance
(We aim to be punctual!)
Bring a blanket, picnic lunch, or bake a lasagna and potluck with friends on the lawn of Wadsworth Square. Abundance also has a small section of prepared food to supplement your picnic. Please reply if you can bring a dart, bocce or croquet set, and we'll have lawn games. Of course, we'll have prizes for Best Bike, Most Radiant and Most Dashing.
Ride your tandem, a cargo bike, XtraCycle, or Surly, if you have one, for a cargo bike rally. Seriously, Cargo Bike Rally! If you saw the documentary Power to the Pedals: Wenzday Jane and the Culture of Change when it screened at the Little Theater for the Rochester Bicycle Film Festival, you'll understand why cargo bikes matter to the bike movement.
