Fun in Atlanta - New Blogs and a Seersucker Social

If you haven't heard, we have a few new bloggers amongst us. T at Just Like Riding a Bike is chronicling her urban explorations by bicycle.  And the new Atlanta Street Fashion blog will include regular cycle chic entries - the very first entry was already featured on Copenhagen Cycle Chic!

Finally, a local gal has set in motion Atlanta's first "Seersucker Social". This is a stylish summer picnic and bicycle ride, more appropriate for a Southern city, culturally and climatically, than a 'tweed ride'. In fact, you can read about the summer socials that used to be held in Atlanta's parks in the 1890's and the early part of the 20th century, typically attended by bicycle. Or by 'wheel' as they used to say. If you are on Facebook, you should be able to view the invitation here. The Seersucker Social will take place on September 4th from 4 pm to 11 pm, at the northern end of Woodruff Park in downtown Atlanta.


  1. Tweed rides, Seesucker Socials...How about Linen and Lace, that would work well too. Especially considering how hot and muggy it has been here lately.


  2. Thanks for the Atlanta Street Fashion mention. This should be fun!

  3. Thanks for mentioning my blog also :) That Seersucker Social sounds like a blast - let's hope it's cooled down at least slightly by then! At least seersucker is lighter than tweed though!

  4. Seersucker is the ideal summer fabric - light, cool, forgiving of sweat... Linen and Lace sounds either elegant or kinky! Or both.

    I'm thrilled about the new take on the cycle scene - it's so different from past years, which have always been full of lycra and testosterone and very few ordinary folk.
