This Week our theme is going to be The Glitter Ride!
We will be starting at Elizabeth’s in the Bywater (601 Gallier St., http://goo.gl/maps/M4GVJ). There’s a big parking lot across the street for everyone to gather in, and they are also doing a series of Happy Hours called “2 Hours of Happiness” with the following specials: $1.50 PBR, $4 house cocktail (TBD), $1 Fish Tacos, $1 Buffalo Wings, $1 Jalepeno poppers, $1 Stuffed Mushrooms, and $1 Dumplings. But here’s the catch – the specials end at 7:30PM! So get down there, get your order in early and dig in! We are going to ask that they extend the specials an extra 15-20mins for us but its better to get down early for food items anyway.
The ride will be heading over the St. Claude Bridge and into the Lower 9th Ward! Don Asay will be your fearless ride leader, and we have a great route and stops in store!
The afterparty this week will be at the Hi-Ho Lounge (2239 St. Claude, https://goo.gl/maps/rTmVr). There are bike corrals at the Hi-Ho and the Allways Lounge across the street, and there will be a free show with two funky local bands: Noisewater and The Quickening. There’s also plenty of other food/drink/entertainment options close by!
ONE NOTE: On the past 3-4 rides our long-time regulars have been picking up trash that has been left at the stops. PLEASE PLEASE pick up your trash! If you have room in your bags/baskets to bring it out, you have room to bring it to the nearest trash can! We don’t want to become known as that group that leaves trash everywhere, and no one enjoys cleaning up other people’s trash. Kudos to the riders that care enough to pick up after others – but don’t make them. Pick it up, and tell everyone around you to pick it up too! Or – just don’t drop it!
Please note: Our goal is always to create a safe environment for all riders. We cannot control, nor do we desire to control, every rider’s behavior. Every rider is individually responsible for taking care of themselves and for the safe operation of their bicycles. Every person that joins the ride is accepting the risks which are inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles. Please be courteous to each other as well as other traffic on the roadways, be safe and always be sure to leave no trace! Please be aware of your surroundings at all times and do not leave your valuables and belongings unattended without securing them. Please also read and abide by the 10 Rules of the Ride, which can be found here: http://www.nolasocialride.org/rulesoftheride/
