** BRBC Saturday Out Of Town Ride:
————————————————————
Doyle High School, 20480 Circle Dr, Livingston, LA 70754
Join us for a ride from Doyle High School in Livingston with choice of 34 or 52 miles on mostly flat roads. Only hills are interstate overpasses, and the Tickfaw river bridge on the 52 mile route. This is a great introduction to out of town riding to those wanting to venture out for the first time.
This is a repeat of an earlier ride that was not well attended due to ice on the bridges. This will NOT happen this Saturday. Cross your fingers that 40 degrees is just a memory until November. The intermediate “B” pace for this ride is 17-19 MPH due to the flat nature of the course. With any luck, there will be more than one “C” paced rider participating, where the pace will be 14-16 MPH. Regardless, this is a no drop ride, and we will wait at corners for slower riders to catch up, unless instructed otherwise.
See link for Ride with GPS map or go to the Yahoo group website for a PDF of the courses which are “Livingston Loop Around 34” and “Livingston Loop Around 52 Rev 1.

** Sunday March 30

** Tour du Cafe
11:00 A.M. Broadmoor Methodist,
11:30 A.M. Goodwood Park & 12:00 P.M. City Park
————————————————————
Join us for a mid-day relaxed pace ride with a choice of distances.
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.
