On a dewy August morning, fifteen members of the Kogod community gathered in Rock Creek Park. Wearing bike shorts and jerseys, carrying helmets and air pumps, they climbed out of their cars and hopped off their bikes. As more bikers arrived, they formed an impromptu circle, chatting about the ride ahead and wondering when the guest of honor—Dean Michael Ginzberg—would arrive.
A few minutes later, Ginzberg rode up in his red Kogod jersey and shorts. The bikers signed a few release forms, snapped a group photo, and jetted off into the woods.
The ride with the dean, organized by Alumni Relations, brought together Kogod faculty, staff, and alumni young and old to join in welcoming him to the Kogod community August 13 with a ride through one of D.C.'s most scenic parks.
The bikers pedaled 10 miles through Rock Creek, then down to Adams Morgan for breakfast at Open City, owned by Kogod alumnus Constantine Stavropoulos, BSBA ’87.
The day's heavy clouds held their rain until right before the bikers arrived at Open City, slightly wet but all smiles after a successful bike ride.
