Both files can be found in the “Files” area of the BRBC Yahoo group site in the folder: “maps/Saint Francisville”. .TCX files for your Garmin Edge GPS are available in the same location inside the GPS folder.

Centreville, MS. Vine Brothers Restaurant… Any Questions?

Bruce is heading off to Centreville, MS with the B group. Ride starts at Vine Brothers Restaurant on the corner of MS Hwys 33/24 & Lower Centreville Rd. Clip-in time is 8:30 AM. Routes of 40 & 53 miles are planned. Bruce will have maps/cue sheets available at the start.

After the ride, Bruce will offer a “teachable moment” on the fine art of dining at Vine Brothers… and you thought he only taught riders to fix flats, and broken chains… WRONG!

Bruce knows food.

Tour du Cafe
Join us for a mid-day relaxed pace ride with a choice of distances.

Broadmoor Methodist – 11:00 AM
Goodwood Park – 11:30 AM
City Park – Noon

Ride starts from the Broadmoor Methodist Parking lot (Molylea @ Sharp) at 11:00 for 40 miles. (We meet in the south side of the parking lot near the 2 story Adult Education Building.) I will be arriving by white pickup with a green bike in the back at BUMC.
The group picks up riders at Goodwood Park at 11:30 for 30 miles
The group picks up still more riders at the City Park Tennis Center at Noon for 20 miles.
This is a no drop ride with a C pace (10-15 MPH but no faster than the slowest rider). It is also known for its teachable moments, as many times less experienced riders will be able to learn from the more experienced participants. No classroom or test, but wouldn’t you like to learn how to avoid a crash, or change a flat quickly?
The group normally stops several times, including BRBeach, Farr Park trailhead, and a stop downtown for coffee or other refreshments.

BRBC Update – April 8, 2014

BRBC Update – April 8,2014
Nearly 30 “A, B & C” Riders Wheel Out From Bains Elementary…

When will the winter end? That was the common question before Saturday, April 5th’s ride. Can’t say this ride was transcendental, as it was a bit chilly, but it certainly was fun! Saturday started a tad chilly, but nearly 30 riders from the BRBC, Geaux Race, and a few tag-alongs set out for another adventure on 2 wheel in the Felicianas. To keep this report brief, we’ll just say everybody had a great ride, and will be back for more!

Cycling cap tips go to first time rider Phillip, who rode with the “C” group on his fixie, no small task in the Felicianas. Also cap tips go to out of towners Charles LeBlanc from Lafayette, Steve Morrissette from Texas, and John Murphy (looks like Murphy, if I’ve got that wrong, sorry John) from Florida. Finally, a big thank you to Gerard Morgan leading the “A” group, Mike Constantin, for keeping the “B” group on their toes, and Herb Sumrall for leading the “C” group.

Keep a lookout for the next great combo group ride to be posted soon!
