Saturday
We are trying a new Saturday ride destination this year. Those who would prefer to ride their own route, visit plantations, etc., are welcome to do their own thing.

  1. Mark Jensen, Bo Griffin, Bobby Fox, Herman van Beek, Leonard & Liz Burton, and Bud Eastburn will be leading a ride to Fat Mama's Tamales in Natchez, MS. along the Mississippi river to experience the legendary tamales of Mississippi. Fat Mama's Tamales is a must see destination when traveling through Natchez.
  2. After lunch we will be taking an alternative route back to Natchitoches through the Kisatchie National Forest after making a quick loop through historic Natchez.
  3. Freshen up at the motel and catch the trolley to the Downtown Natchitoches starting at 6 PM. Everyone will be free to make their own dinner arrangements on Saturday night. Plenty of places to enjoy downtown.

Sunday
Group ride home will depart from Hotel at 8 am. We will be stopping for a hamburger in Jefferson, TX.
