    yes it's mandatory Just kidding Mel, lots of women wear costumes but it's not required. A helmet's the only thing required ... wait a minute, wait a minute, let's not go with that visual It's not clothing optional.
    Oh dear. That Bob Roll commercial where he's on the trainer naked is coming to mind.

    Hrm. I still have my tiara from my wedding... I could also get geared up in my Faire garb but the skirts would really get in the way. heh. Maybe I could just wear the tiara and my cloak?

    Often riders will adorn their helmets with silk flowers or ribbons or other various and sundry frou-frou.

    Another popular option has been known to attach a piece of lightweight netting or tule (sp?) to the back of your helmet for that lovely flowing veil effect, one benefit of which is that it makes it seem like you're going faster in photos

    Tiaras are optional, but are always appreciated. Scepters are somewhat frowned upon for safety concerns, particularly if they were originally cattle prods.

    Can I use a javelin so long as I wear a tiara? It would only be aimed at car tires (and the 3-abreast tea parties).

    Many things are forgiven if you wear a parrot or a tiara. Or both.

    I'd be aiming the javelin at the groups that congregate after every intersection making it impossible to ride in the bike lane. One reason (out of many) that I will not do this ride again.

    Oh gee, meeting at a bar, I don't know about that ...

    LOL ! Couldn't keep a straight face !

    I think getting together after the ride for a recovery beverage is a super idea. There's always a tasty assortment of food-like items in the main building after the ride, and, like snap said, the bar on the other end of the building has been open in the past (we, um, know this from personal experience ). If I recall correctly they had soft drinks, as well as a good selection of beer.

    And, the slowpokes who you've just squeezed past who insist on riding around everyone else to the front at each traffic light?

    V, we are sound old and bitter.

    Truthfully though, for anyone who hasn't ridden this ride before, this ride probably has the highest percentage of inexperienced group cyclists of all I have ridden. Combine the high volume of riders with the traffic density -- please be very careful!

    LOL - for myself #1. For you - oh I guess #1. Someday I'll be your age and you can't be old because I'll be old when I get there. Bitter - nah. You're too sweet. I like my hat.
