Store, suiting up at 4pm and ending at around 6:30pm the Belgian Beer
Café where cyclists are loved.
PLUS, there are now 52 inflatable suits thanks to Jonathan H. from Los
Angeles, who got his mother, a professional parachutes seamstress for
the US Department of Defense, to make a perfect pair of suits and
donated them to the ride.
The first 52 web signups to CONFIRM will get wear a suit for the ride.

The Rain Date for the Ride is Saturday March 25th – same time and place.
All the rides I have done outside of New York are made possible by a
member of the local bike communities who volunteers to co-organize
ride. These people are the champions of their local ride. This ride's
champ is Chris Star who is an active member of the bike world in
Melbourne. A big thanks to her and her pals for helping out. Let me
know if you are interested in co-organizing a ride in your city!
AND a big thanks to all of you who have supported the ride. Remember
to order your lovely hand screenprinted Aeolian Ride poster online to
help keep the Aeolian Ride blowing up!
