When checking in at the Drury Inn in New Orleans, the Front desk manager Asked, Who inspired you to ride that far? Forest Gump?
On Bourbon Street we took the opportunity to order a "Hand Grenade" ( one really should not order this drink after cycling 81 miles and only eating a home tomato) We chatted with the bartender who asked if we had been in New Orleans yesterday and participated in the naked bike ride? YUK
