this year marked the 4th Annual Seersucker Social and my second year in a row in attendance for the fancy ride through Atlanta’s hilly streets! dressed in our finest Southern duds, bike baskets loaded with blankets, food and drinks we peddled, waved to cars and jammed to swing jazz for about 7 miles before setting up a picnic area in the Historic Oakland Cemetery!
take a look into one of my favorite events-
packed and ready to RIDE!
check out Cole’s super nifty ‘picnic table’ on-the-go that you simply pressed into the ground, came in handy for all of our fancy glasses!
Kensie dress, Banana Republic (mens) fedora, Clothing Warehouse sunnies, Superga tennies
ps: i wore bike shorts don’t you worry!
Tannis was the youngest of riders and a really rad 6th grader!
Kyle helped host the event while keeping us laughing during the ride and taking action shots! caught him assisting Cole with getting his sprinkle print bowtie straightened out for my photo :P
meet Kwanza Hall a city councilman representing District 2, we met while I was working at Fastsigns and helped him print up some campaign signs many years ago. he came along for the Social riding his brightly colored fixed gear and rode the whole time wearing a blazer in 90 degree Southern heat! I asked “how in the world are you still riding with that on?!?!” he said “I’m just keeping it cool” per usual might I say, he’s changed the way I think of politicians!
