Be aware, the WABA Bicyclist Choice Awards (http://www.waba.org/events/washington-area-bicyclists-choice-awards/) are that same evening.

Imagine this: It's a Tuesday evening in late February and you're riding your bike through the car-free streets of Clarendon. Clamoring revelers, three deep on either side, line the road--each one vying for your attention as you choose which ones are worthy of your time to throw candy and beads to. The crowd is whipped into a feverish delirium as you ring your bell and maneuver your bike along the frenzy. Talk about a rush!! (Don't worry, we'll supply the candy and beads for you...)

We're officially asking for volunteers now. Come out--it'll be the most fun you've had on a bike in awhile!!

RSVP on the FB link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1286133311425162/ or just let us know here that you're coming.

Oh great, a mild winter and now it's going to snow the week after next because you announced a Mardi Gras parade.

Bob beat you to that punchline, two years ago (http://bikearlingtonforum.com/calendar.php?do=getinfo&e=64). How does it feel to be bested by Bob?

It was an homage to Bob.

Heads up! This is tomorrow night!

We'll be meeting at the corner of Wilson/Barton (Delhi Dhaba, Papa John, Java Shack intersection) at 6:30. Parade rolls out at 7pm. We've got tons of candy and beads.

See you there.

Potentially the most fun you can have biking 2 miles per hour!

...he says in jest.

But looking back to last year, I averaged 2.4mph for the mile!

In keeping with tradition, weather has made itself known for tonight's parade. BUT. Despite the rain--the parade will go on (https://www.arlnow.com/2017/02/28/clarendon-mardi-gras-parade-will-go-on-despite-rain-forecast/)!

See y'all out there for a slow roll through the mists of Clarendon!
