Black Women Bike Happy Hour
Friday, June 17 · 5:00pm – 7:00pm
The Liaison Capitol Hill And Art & Soul Restaurant
415 New Jersey Ave NW
Because in some circles the false perception persists that only young white hipsters appreciate the District’s multimodal transportation options and the joys of cycling, a few women pedalers of color in the city are getting together tonight for a little reality check, gear & girl talk, to discuss crucial safety issues and style concerns (ie: how to deal with helmet hair for those with ‘fros, dreads and those who spend jawdropping sums at the beautyshop) and have a few drinks without jeopardizing the ride home.
I’m sure my mom would join the group, but the commute from California over the Rockies would be a bit much for her at 74 (and I’m afraid she would actually consider it — for a minute).
