So that was exciting. I am now being sought out for interviews by the local media. Well, sort of. On our bike ride down the levee and through LSU we decided not to wait the 20 minutes to get a table at Louie's. So after much debate, a consult on the I Phone and discussion with a quartet of LSU students tormenting a fifth student we decided to head to VooDoo BBQ on Nicholson Drive. And that chain of events led to the interview by Keitha Nelson of Channel 9. She was hunting die hard LSU fans (chortle, choke which is NOT me!) and asking about the game last night and last weekend.
She grew interested in the bikes and we will probably dominate the feature as they took video of us getting on the bikes, riding up and down the street, the purple bikes Amber and I have and a rousing shout of "We're Number Once!)
The ride debuted three new bikes. Frank, Amber and I all have new wheels! Dan negotiated with the bike guy at Capitol Cyclery and we got great deals with a lot of extra gear. Today our ride took us 13 miles from the State Capitol to the LSU Stadium to Voodoo BBQ and back through the concert at the Shaw Center downtown.
You know it is Louisiana when you see beads in the trees!
Here is Amber on her new bike.
Dancing Waters at the Centroplex
. Can you see the planets???
Then on to the Mississippi River Levee and a great view of the bridge and some of the LSU cows.
This is us trying to decide where to eat. Voodoo BBQ wins.
This is Frank trying to look like he is just having a causal discussion while the TV cameras roll! LSU Bike Impound. LSU Stadium where it all happens
Dan leaning on a post on the levee looking toward downtown. See the state capitol bldg in the distance on the left?
And here is the Cajun Music Fest we rode through in Downtown.
