BentLovers & Friends
This Saturday is our annual Natchez or Bust Ride! Aptly named, this is a tough ride down the Natchez Trace from the Ride South shop to the Natchez State Park. We have a dinner reservation at the Magnolia Grille at 4:15 PM, so the pace needs to be spirited to make the 104 miles, enjoy a wine & cheese reception, shower, load the bikes and drive to the dinner spot, overlooking the river! Lane will provide SAG with the Outback and bike trailer and Doug has offered to leave his truck at the park (he will be riding up from Natchez on Friday). I will drive Doug’s truck back as he has other plans on Saturday.
Please come by the shop this week to sign up as we have limited space. It is important that riders leave the shop on Saturday with the rest of the group. The logistics and worry are too much to allow riders to join us along the way! Remember to bring a small bag for your change of clothes to put in Lane’s car. We will return by 9:00 PM to the shop directly, so you can leave your vehicle here during the day. The shop will be closed all day Saturday. We will hold a brief 6:00 PM meeting on Friday to firm up transport plans.
On the other extreme, The Annual Ridgeland Christmas Parade will be Saturday, December 3! This three mile ride usually runs at a blistering 2 MPH . . . just right for fully decorated recumbent trikes from Ride South! Anyway, we have decided to spice it up this year with a little competition, in another way. Decorate your trike for a little friendly competition and win valuable prizes from the shop, and maybe get our group judged the best in show! Wouldn’t that be something! The Parade lineup is 12:45 PM at Holmes Community College. Be there early!
