“Black Women Bike” Happy Hour Tonight

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 https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=161674717231382 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).
