  • April 2d Saturday R-2-E

    For the 2d AlaBeemer Ride-2-Eat in April, the North Alabama MOAL contingent will visit the Bankhead National Forest area, and Chef Troy’s “Talk of the Town” eatery in Houston, AL. The actual address for interested riders traveling from other directions is, 4815 CR-63, across the street from the US Post Office, Houston, AL [ N34° 08.492' W87° 15.483' ]. The menu has of all your favorites, as well as daily specials on the white-board. Chef Troy seems to have an affinity for Cajun seasoning to include: Po’ Boys, Gulf seafood, and Jambalaya. Several riders on Friday enjoyed the Meat & 3 Veg lunch plate for $7.99. My Gambino Melt was a 7oz elongated burger w/grilled onions & Swiss served on fried Gambino toast with seasoned “JoJo potatoes” for $6.99 {a yummy hamburger sub}! Also available are Omelets, salads, catfish, 12” pizzas or a dozen wings, plus desserts.

    The HSV crewe will meet for breakfast at the Blue Plate Cafe at 3210 Governor’s Dr SW before 0800 (as per usual). We’ll depart ~0900 for the Murphy Gas station (behind the Verizon store at the Walmart) on Redstone Road at 11602 South Parkway arriving 0915. Non-Ethanol High-test Gas may be available. We’ll depart southward on US-231 around 0930 sticking mostly to backroads: Rt 36, Old US-31, CR-1101, CR-41, & Rt 278 to CR-63 for lunch. Everyone can return home via any chosen route; P&K plan to make a few random BMWMOA CoddiWomple photo stops regarding the summer’s national scavenger hunt…


    An RSVP before April 10th would be appreciated!
    Be Safe & Have Fun, after all, it's Spring now!
    Ciao! Phil & Karen

            Projected weather on Saturday is 40/60 it seems.

            Phil and Karen will ride our newer Beemers on Saturday; y'all are free to Ride, Drive, or stay home.
            We've often ridden in inclement weather, both domestically and internationally. We'll pull over if the lightning gets too close - that's what riders do (when necessary)...

            Here's my planned Route from HSV.
            We're proceeding with our Ride-to-Eat plans for Houston, AL as of Friday @1030.
            Ciao Y'all!

                      I really enjoyed the 2nd Saturday ride and lunch at Chef Troy’s. I saw some friends I haven’t seen for a while which is always good. The ride up and back was great. Well, except for getting through Bham. A good day all around. Thx to HSV-Phil for his planning efforts.

                        Well Jack it was good to see that the rain didn't stop you and I was very close to giving up myself but glad I came and it was really good to see everyone. Thank you Phil for putting the ride together. Hope the next RTE doesn't have weather issues. See y'all there!!

                          Appreciate those AlaBeemers (and guests) who made the effort to attend the Second 2nd Saturday R-2-E!

                          The day started out a bit drizzly, but it improved Greatly throughout the day! Hope all who attended enjoyed their Lunch, and their Ride to get to Chef Troy's and their chosen routes home! Also hope our newlywed chums from Madison are still 'chummy' and on speaking terms after a bit of a Get-Off along the very slippery Bankhead Forest service road...

                          We were blessed to have a dozen attendees today: Y'all mostly know each other, but here's the list of riders/driver!

                            The rain miraculously stopped @ 9:00am! That gave me a clear shot (on some damp roads) to Chef Troy's in Houston. Since I don't get the opportunity to join ya'll too often, it's sweet when the weather and the routes all work out. It was great to see ya'll, and to meet some new folks!
