My Pre-Game Ride

I needed to get out and work off some nervous energy so I went out for a ride. I've been fighting a cold on and off for a while so I didn't know how far I'd go. I did 32.5 miles which is long for me!

It was a beautiful day. Go Saints!!

Nice! Why the "Smokey and The Bandit" shades? Prescription?

No, I rode some in the city before hitting the levee so I needed somewhere to attach my mirror!

Good ride. I only made 25 today before the game. Still pretty cold up here in Bossier.
Congrats to you and the Saints! Great game.

I'm glad you got out before the game, because you'd never find a clear street after it. :-) Congratulations!

So, is that the levee behind the zoo? I used to live on Exposition Blvd.

Yep, that's "the fly"...behind the zoo. The city has been on fire for 2 weeks and last night was unbelievable!

I'm so proud of our team. They have been so good for this city in so many ways!

jmccain, did you wind up leaving after the storm?? You must have had some really good motivation to move off of Exposition! I live between Carrollton and Broadway...luckily I was on the right side of the water line.

I ride mostly on the levee but I know at some point I've got to get more comfortable in traffic or it will get boring quick!
