I know there a lot of guys on here with bikes so I was wondering how many of yall make trips to ride? I have a few guys that go ride some of the state trails and maybe we could plan a trip after the first of the yr to get together and make a big ride.... so what do some of yall think, anyone have some good places to go Louisiana, Mississippi, or Arkansas?

Sounds like fun. Used to ride a lot up north of Moss Bluff. There's a place in Converse too right by Toledo.

I make several rides a year at Cravens, Forest Hill and in Sandstone, just north of Leesville.

If y'all ever want to get a ride together and I'm available, I would love to go.

Is that place in Topsy still there where you pay like $5 or so to ride? And you can ride the trails down to the river and take a dip then keep ridin.

Yes it is.....but I think it's $20 now. They are doing a big night ride on New Years Eve.

Couldn't think of Topsy but that's what I meant by north of Moss Bluff, lol. Used to love riding to the sand bars to swim and drink some cold beer.

only bad thing there is if you ride state trails you have to have the riders course and the tag to prove it

Drop bikes off at Mae's Beach and ride to the Sabine Lighthouse at the mouth of the river.

can you get around that way? I have driven my truck out there when I took care of the oil wells down there.Drop bikes off at Mae's Beach and ride to the Sabine Lighthouse at the mouth of the river.

You can go from Mae's Beach all the way to the light house.
When 3 wheelers first came out, we usta do that in the spring.
Also, you can drop at Rutherfords Beach and go all the way to Cameron, or almost all the way to Mermentau River. At one time, the mouth of the Mermentau was right at the end of the Rutherfords Beach road and Hackberry Beach Island was on the other side. We would float the 3 wheelers across the river and ride on the island beach. Now the mouth of the river closed off and you can ride anything down the beach.

No matter what people will tell you, the first 150 ft of beach from the water line inland, is public beach.

It's best to go with at least 2 bikes and a long rope, incase of breakdowns.
Bring groceries, drinks and gas also. Once you get started on that open beach,
you want to ride all day long.

Our attention is focused on the Saltycajun Tournament in August 2012. However, with that being said, you are more than welcome to coordinate a ride and let everyone on this site know all the specifics of when and where at and I will gladly participate. Love a good ATV ride....:)

What do you have in mind for this event? There are several trail systems in the Fort Polk, Forest Hill, Alexandria and other areas that are state trails that have big camping areas with a lot of parking that could be used. Somthing as simple as hamburgers for food or hot dogs would work..... just throw some ideas out and see what you can get and who will jump in with you, I am game for somthin like this and will do what I can to help.

I do not even live in Louisiana anymore so I would not be much help to you. Like Bluechip I may be intrested in coming to the event with my ATV and I am sure I would help with anything you need but I do not know any of the trail areas in Louisiana (or Texas either actually).

I am always interested in helping people especially kids so please do keep me posted and I will do anything I can to help.

see i didn't think about food, i can't afford to supply enough hot dogs or hamburgers to feed a crew nor do i know any one capable of that, i was throwing an idea out there,

i can pitch in and help but i don't have the resources to feed a large group of people

and i don't know who or where to call to get started to set up for a ride,

i have only been a fourwheeler "owner" for a few months now, i have never been on any kind of trail ride other than to and from my deer stand

I have never organized anything like this myself but if you want to get an idea of what's involved contact some of the guys getting the fishing tournament together and ask some questions. You may talk around and find people or businesses that will donate money, prizes or food to help out with expense or I am not sure but you could possibly take a set portion of money donated to cover expense.....
If anyone else reads this and has info that would help speak up please.
