For those who haven't seen the calendar, our first club social event in awhile is taking place on Wendesday 8/10 at Haley's Honey Meadery in downtown Fredericksburg. It should be a great time, as well as an opportunity to support a local business. If you have seen the calendar, please register and join us!
As your social chair, I want to know...what other ideas or suggestions do you have for social events? Please feel free to reach out via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or comment in the thread below to share your thoughts.
If you have space and are willing to host, know a local business that might be friendly to a group of cyclists, etc., I'm all (g)ears!
Thanks for using the Message Board! It is a great public way to communicate.
I do have an idea, although it may not be super original. I would like the club to host an event at two places: Red Dragon and Six Bears and a Goat. I like Red Dragon because the owner Bill Evans is an avid cyclist and has Stage 4 Melanoma. Lots and lots of area cyclists are really pulling for him so it would be nice to host an event there. You, of course, already know that it is downtown so we can easily ride from there.
Tanya Conover used to host events at Six Bears and a Goat, and I can see why. It is a brewery with a full-service restaurant, and they have lots of tables, both indoor and outdoor. Also, it was just pointed out to me that you can safely bike ride to Six Bears from the Celebrate Va Shopping Center across Route 17. That means it can also be used as a "ride and social" like the one at Hailey's Honey Meadery.
Anyway, not super original because at least one of these locations has been used before, but it has been 3 or 4 years, at least!
Thanks for reaching out to all of us. I hope some others respond.
