Bicycle-Superman

October 2 we will be doing a Superheroes Ride!

It’s the first week of the month, and we are back at our Uptown start spot: Dat Dog on Freret (5031 Freret, http://bit.ly/JMWraz). As always, they will be treating us to the normal food and drink specials (10% off food and ask the bartender for drink specials). Make sure to arrive early if you want to get food! The ride will begin around 7:45, and we will have a tracker running for those who are late or want to catch up mid-way.

To entice people into making a good costume, we are also going to be giving away a $25 gift certificates to Spirit Halloween! For those without a costume, we have 30+ sets of Marvel tattoo sleeves that will be available to help make a few people’s nights a bit more super!

Afterparty is at the Publiq House for the Brass-a-Holics show and riders get in free!

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.

Leprechaun Ride This Week with a Pot Of Gold in the LGD! (Sept. 25)

 

Leprechaun Ride

This week is gonna be a Leprechaun Ride!!

We are starting this ride at The Irish House (1432 St Charles Ave at Melpomene). Chef Matt has been wanting us to stop by for months, and we are pleased to be able to come by! There will be food and drink specials that can be found at this link.

This week we will be on a search for a pot of gold! Actually it’s going to be easy to find: The Prytania Bar kindly extended an offer to us last week for a free keg just for us, so we are going to take them up on it! The keg will be our pot of gold, and the afterparty will begin as soon as we get there. Don’t be a party crasher and just show up for the afterparty! Or do. Who cares, just come have fun!

We are also going to take a ride through Tyronne Smith Sr.‘s obstacle course/MTB trail on MLK, which should be a treat. We may even go through twice!

This will be a good week to reach into your costume box and recycle your St. Patrick’s day costumes!

Happy Monday!
Here are the plans for tomorrows MUSIC ride.
We will be led by Randy a regular rider on our rides but he is not on FB but he does exist Randy leads rides for Crescent City Cyclists often so I am sure he will do a great job and provide an interesting ride. Here are his plans: Roll on time at 7pm and ride CBD and Quarter until about 8 for the first stop at BMC for Eudora Evans and Deep Soul, the next leg will be an extended ride through Quarter and Bywater and we will finish just after 10 at the Lost Love Lounge where there is great food and Stand Up Comedy from 10:30-11:30 for those that want to stay. There will probably be a couple of quick stops to be decided on the ride.
So don’t be late this one should be great!
