    If I make it I'll be in a sweet dark blue sling. Last time I broke a bone I had a lame sky blue one with white trim.

    You still have time to attach rhinestones. A sling with bling!

    Funny you should mention rhinestones.

    I have six rolls of rhinestones I've been using to patch the sparkle bike.
    A dozen sock monkeys that will make perfect sense after the second beer
    Boots that defy gravity and rational thought
    A giant sunflower that seemed like a good idea if I can figure out how to attach it to the bike
    An abundance of lace to cover what should remain covered
    A sundress that might actually be a shirt, hard to tell
    A pink parasol because by God it can be hot in the sun

    We are planning two/three group rides from Phoenix Bikes in Barcroft Park. One early (8am) for a couple of us working the event all day; another around 11am for the teens in our program who can't/wont meet for an early ride. There will possibly be a third around 1pm with the staffers who will close the shop early to join the fun.

    We are also still in need of a couple of volunteers to help us with taking down the event (from 5-7pm). You can enjoy the event, then get your do-gooder points after (and ride home in the cooler evening air.) Contact henry@phoenixbikes.org if you can help.

    Isn't the answer always zip ties and duct tape?

    Current forecast is 75-91F. Just about spray bottle weather.

    Getting to Nationals Park - I've never ridden there, only driven past on the way to other pursuits. From Takoma Google maps wants me to take the MBT to Union Station, then east on F St , south on 4th St SE and then west again along the riverwalk to the stadium. Any thoughts on the merits or demerits of that route?

    That's a great route. Exactly what I would suggest. Just make sure you end up on the east side of the railroad tracks after you get off the MBT at M St NE, otherwise you'll have to deal with Columbus Circle. Nobody wants that.

    Bonus - Tour de Fat is actually at Yards Park, and 4th St SE runs directly into Yards Park. Once you turn off F St NE you won't have to make another turn until you get there.
