Hey all you lady cyclists (or would-be cyclists) out there– just a heads up that Revolution Cycles is holding two Ladies’ Night gatherings this month with free wine, food, and great biking information. This Wednesday, head out to the Crystal City Revolution Cycles from 6:30 to 8:30, and next Thursday August 12, head to the Georgetown shop from 6:30 to 8:30. Women from the Revolution Cycles team will discuss where to ride, why to ride, and how to ride safely and comfortably. The point of these sessions is to reduce barriers so we all feel more comfortable riding around the city. It doesn’t matter if you’re a serious triathlete or a casual bike commuter– we all need to know how to change a flat and how to properly maintain a bike. So come for the bike knowledge, and stay for the wine and refreshments. All they ask is that you RSVP for Crystal City (8/4) or Georgetown (8/12) beforehand. See you there!
Oh hai, cute soccer boys! It’s going to be Ladies Night on Saturday, May 9 at RFK when DC United takes on Toronto FC. And we’re giving away two tickets to said Ladies Night for the best Barra Brava chant. We’re looking for the best DC United-related cheer, chant or song for the stands, which you can leave in the comments now. Writing your drum solos and illustrating your song with streamers and flags and smoke bombs is optional.
Ladies Night will be full of soccer, but also frivolity. Ladies get the chance to try a couple of beers, partake in a wine tasting, chocolate fountain, appetizers, manicures, chair dancing lessons and the chance to go field-side after the game to meet Devon McTavish and rookie Chris Pontius (and get their jersey!). Hawt. (Sidenote: Chris Pontius was recently in CosmoGirl. Seriously.)
So, let the chanting begin in the comments… the deadline for entries will be noon on May 7th, the ever-enthusiastic WLDC staff will vote on the winner, and we’ll announce it on the 8th so the winner can plan thier Saturday evening accordingly. For examples, you can check out Barra Brava’s songs and chants site. Men, you can enter too.
