"The Coral Gables Tweed Ride this past winter featured over 100 riders on a variety of bikes who pedaled through the City Beautiful donning vintage attire. Next month, the Coral Gables Museum and the Green Mobility Network are teaming up to present a biking event fashioned for South Florida’s warm, early autumn weather.
The Seersucker Social, on Saturday October 16, will offer another enjoyable and relaxing biking experience by encouraging participants to tour the Gables in their best seersucker ensemble. According to Wikipedia, seersucker was originally worn by the poor in the U.S. until undergraduate students, in an air of reverse snobbery, began to wear the fabric. Damon Runyon wrote that his new habit for wearing seersucker was "causing much confusion among my friends. They cannot decide whether I am broke or just setting a new vogue." Let’s opt for the latter!
Participants will gather at the University Metrorail Station on Ponce de Leon Boulevard at 10:30am and bicycle through the Gables, with a stop and tour at the Coral Gables Museum, and then pedal on to the historic Coral Gables Merrick House at 907 Coral Way for a picnic, badminton and croquet. The catered lunch featuring fabulous food from the Green Gables Café is $14 per person. You can still join in the fun and ride without purchasing the picnic lunch.
