Second Sunday Seersucker Saunter Spectacular

We are pleased to announce our second leisurely, themed ride to be held in the glorious city of Pittsburgh. In following with the relaxed style of the Tweed Ride earlier this spring, but with apparel adjustments more in tune with a hot August afternoon, we present the Second Sunday Seersucker Saunter Spectacular.

The ride will be just short of 10 miles, and shall prevail at a slow enough pace so as to never break into a full sweat. The saunter will start in Schenley Park, at the top of the upper field near the turn around in Overlook Drive, and progress through the Park, Southside, Downtown and a brief stint in the Northside before retiring to the courtyard of the Priory Hotel, where light refreshments will be served. The entire experience will begin at 9:30 AM on Sunday the 8th of August, 2010, which coincides quite nicely with Bike-PGH‘s BikeFest celebration. There is a Facebook Event that you can join, if you would like as well.

Additionally, we have secured some bells from Velo-Orange which we will sell for only $5 at the beginning of the route. Drew and I will be there as early as 8:45-9 AM, so feel free to pick up some additional swag for your bike to help you alert those along the route!

Please joins us in our joy of riding and appreciating the bicycle’s heritage on the 8th. Whether head-to-toe garb, or simply in the mindset to enjoy a relaxed ride with good company, it should be a great time. Feel free to download either the Poster or Map by click on the image to retrieve a PDF format file.

  1. Ben & Drew,

    The Priory Hotel is looking forward to hosting the end of the ride. We’re planning on pastries from our bakery (Priory Fine Pastries), ice tea, and Mimosas! If all goes well I’ll even be tagging along on the ride.

    See you on the 8th,

    Splendid!

    Could someone direct me to some good establishments at which to purchase said seersucker in the Pittsburgh region?

    I had great luck finding Seersucker shirts at the local thrift store. Short sleeve only, however. Also saw that Brooks Brothers downtown has reasonable shirts in both short and long sleeve.

  6. Just a quick update – I’ve been asked if the Mimosas are part of a cash bar and the answer is NO! We are suppling this adult beverage Free to our friends in the ride.

    And Diana – You are always welcome at The Priory!

    See you all on Sunday!
