The First Annual Philly Seersucker Vintage Bike Ride

Never mind the DNC, the Summer of 2016 will be marked with a fabulous historical event, the first Philly Seersucker Vintage Bike Ride & Social.

On June 25th, 2016 participants attired in cotton, linen and seersucker clothing that harkens back to the era of Prohibition and Gatsby will meet at a to-be-revealed location in Old City Philadelphia and take a casual bike ride around the city. The well-attired group will end the ride at a to-be-revealed location for a vintage-style picnic where classic lawn games and dance instruction will be offered. The Vintage Bike Ride will include stops for some vintage jazz dancing and a rest stop featuring the summer classics iced-tea and lemonade.

The Vintage Picnic Social will immediately follow the Ride and bike parking services will be available. The Vintage Bike Ride is free but all participants are required to register and complete a waiver. The Vintage Picnic Social requires a “2016 Summer Membership Fee” but membership is open to all. Participants can do both activities, or just the Vintage Bike

Ride or just the Vintage Picnic Social. The start location for the Vintage Bike Ride and the venue for the Vintage Picnic Social will be revealed the day before via the event’s web site and social media outlets. Gourmet Box Lunches featuring turkey, roast beef or vegetarian entrée’s will be available for per-order and delivered at the Vintage Picnic Social. Net proceeds from the event will benefit Neighborhood Bike Works, a Philadelphia based non-profit that fosters youth development based on cycling and cycling-based activity.

For more information and to register go to Philly Seersucker Vintage Bike & Social is the result of efforts by the producers –and proud native Philadelphians- John and Dawn Petty and event planner Stacey W. Gross. As vintage enthusiasts who enjoy the fellowship and company of other vintage enthusiasts the Petty’s often found themselves going to New York (for the “Boater’s Ball and “Jazz Age Lawn Party”) and Washington DC (for the DC Tweed Ride and the DC Seersucker Ride & Social) to attend vintage-themed events. The pursuit of vintage-themed activities led them to “discovering” a very large and active Philly vintage community. “I seek to be in ‘vintage mode’ every day” says John A. Petty II, founder of Dandies & Quaintrelles-Philly, “not just in the clothing I wear but also in style and behavior, I do try” he says with a smile, “so it’s fun

and something of an escape to be in the company of people who are similarly interested and who also seek –for at least a little while- to comport themselves with the manners and behavior of a more civil time.” The duo seeks to add an event to Philly’s Vintage calendar that combines an appeal to an active lifestyle and the area’s large cycling community (as they are both also cyclists) with their love of vintage style. They admit to taking a cue from others as the event is modeled on similar events in other cities and it is the summer version of the Philly Tweed Ride which happens annually and for which John led the cycling portion last year. “It’s going to be FABULOUS” says Dawn, “and it’s very much a family event.” All are encouraged to visit cialis using for more information and to register.
