Silver Slipper bike nights (Thursdays)

Postby Bareass172 » Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:24 pm

This is just a general post to let everyone know that the Silver Slipper bike nights are starting up again this Thursday (4/4/13). They usually run through (I think) October. We meet at the Shell gas station on Fremeaux (Hwy 190) out here in Slidell. This is the location on a Google map:

For anyone local, it's at the corner of Hwy 190 and Indian Village Rd. The station is called the "Indian Village Trading Post".

We meet most every week (unless the weather is just terrible) at about 5:30 PM and ride out taking Hwy 190 to Hwy 90 and then turn off of Hwy 90 onto Lower Bay Rd which is one of the nicer (albeit short) roads I've found out here near the coast. Lower Bay puts us right into Lakeshore Dr and that gets us to the beach right by the Slipper. It's a nice ride, we grab dinner at the Casino, play our free five bucks in the slots, and then check out the bikes and cars before we ride home.

If you're interested post here so we know to expect you. If we're not expecting anyone else sometimes we pull out a little early. :elated:

Ha! Yeah, we didn't go either. The weather had mostly cleared out but there were still some sprinkles, the roads were wet, and we had a lot of tornado watches/warnings out also. I am looking forward to next week though, the weather's just been so nice for riding lately.

Misses last week because of rain, but the weather, the ride, and the turnout have been great so far. :thumb:
