I woke up this morning to walk Hope and was shocked to feel that it was already warm and sunny at 6am! I checked the weather on my phone and nearly fell over when I saw that, after two utterly depressing days of rain and gloom, we’re finally back to sunshine and 75 degree temperatures! It’s the perfect weather for gathering with friends outside, so we decided to come up with a 2-part adventure that will hopefully inspire you and your friends to spend some time exploring your city on two wheels.
Amy and I got into bikes in a big way last year, and Max has an adorable red vintage bike, so we decided to dedicate this adventure idea to the perfect weekend bike ride. I love few things more than staying close to home over the weekend, so we decided to create an invite template that would work for any hometown neighborhood. The idea is to gather with your friends on bikes, discover all of the best parts of your city and wrap up the day with a delicious (gathered) picnic in a local park. We’ll be sharing our own Greenpoint adventure next week (and our map this week!), but this week we’re starting by giving you the tools (2 print-out downloads and 2 DIY ideas) to build your own adventure for the summer months. For even more inspiration, be sure to follow our Weekend Bike Ride Board on Pinterest!
I hope this will inspire some fun bike rides this spring and summer. If you take your friends out on your own custom adventure, we’d love to see your pics! Just send them to us in the comment section or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
The full how-tos and downloadable invites and map are after the jump!
