I am new to the riding thing and made a promise to myself before I bought my bike ,I wouldn't drink alcohol while riding my bike. I will keep this promise for many reasons. Every Wednesday here in the New Orleans area , there are a lot of places that have the "bike nights". At one of the more popular spots, there are as many as 1200 bikes parked in many lines,,all close together. I see so much drinking and it just makes me wonder when someone will make the mistake of dropping their bike or just hitting another bike, creating the "domino effect". I have seen bikes bumped..and I have seen bikes dropped because of gravel,,just wasn't next to someone else's bike (wow).. I don't drive my bike to these bike night events because of the above, and yes it takes some fun out of it,, but then again I don't have to worry either about the other bike next to me. So do you drink when riding?
