IMPORTANT – Today’s Bike Ride With Buddy A. – IMPORTANT

 

** IMPORTANT – Today’s Bike Ride With Buddy A. – IMPORTANT
————————————————————

Wednesday, August 5, 2015
9:00 AM
Forest Park, Near the Dog Park
13900 South Harrell’s Ferry Road
Baton Rouge, LA 70816

There will be a bike tour of District 8, including representatives from the Mayors office and from the Complete Street Program. This will be about a 10 mile ride.

Please note, this is not a political event, or a meeting. Councilman Amaroso is hoping to show what needs to be improved with existing infrastructure for cyclists, and what needs to be added for the future.

Your input, and participation is greatly appreciated. Also if you commute in this area your input is of special importance.

In light of what has happened in Baton Rouge over the past couple of days, respectful discourse on the part of the cycling community, in spite of the fact we’re all pretty pissed off, should go a long way to further safer cycling.

Thanks,

Herb Sumrall, Jr.
BRBC

P.S. After this ride, Lou’s Wednesday Miles group will add another 20-30 miles to the route in lieu of their normal ride.

Don’t Forget About Our Other Great Weekend Rides!
Saturday, August 1, 2015

Late Risers – 9:00 AM from Goodwood Park, and 9:45 AM from City Park

Lou, Myself and Others will be riding Saturday Morning from Goodwood Park at 9:00am and pass by City Park at 9:45am. Both B and C paces are available. The miles are about 35-40 miles from Goodwood Park and about 20 miles from City Park.

————————————————————

Sunday, August 2, 2015

Come join us for the Sunday version of the Tour du Café.

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.)

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 (Perkins @ Magnolia/Broussard) 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. Last week we stopped at Hotel Indigo Grocery.
