It’s Our Birthday, It Might Be Yours Too!








It’s Our Birthday, It Might Be Yours Too!

** Join us for a year long celebration!

2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Baton Rouge Bicycle Club, and we’re celebrating all year long! We’re celebrating 50 years as Baton Rouge’s premier cycling club on the last Sunday of every month, and if your birthday is in that month, and you’re a BRBC member be sure to join us for a little something special just for you! So this Sunday, April 27th @ 4:00 PM, we’re celebrating the birthday of any club member born in April… cake balls & coffee at Brew Ha-Ha! Even if you’re birthday isn’t in April come on out, and join the celebration, and remember when it’s your birthday month the cake balls and coffee are on the us.

Is there a better way to close out a Sunday than riding the Tour du Cafe, and finishing off with a treat? we don’t think so!

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.
