BRBC’s Saturday Out Of Town Ride has moved from Clinton to Bains! We’ll be meeting at Bains Elementary School, 8:00 AM for another fun-filled ABC groups combo ride!
Nobody left behind, stopping at all turns for regrouping.
Please be prepared. You should carry spare tube(s)/patch kit, tire tools, and a means to inflate your tire(s) in case you flat. Also, carry 2 water bottles, and food/snacks to replenish your energy, bonking is not an option… at least not one you want to try. We will stop periodically to refill water bottles if necessary, but there will be few if any opportunities to pick up snacks along the way.
Ride leaders will be:
“A” Group – Gerard Morgan – 225-505-8490
“B” Group – Mike Constantin – 225-937-9157
“C” Group – Herb Sumrall – 225-921-5488

Wheels To Succeed Ride
** Sunday, April 6, 2014
See event web site for schedule
One of the areas great charity rides benefiting the McMains Children’s’ Developmental Center – a non-profit that purchases adapted bikes for disabled children throughout South Louisiana. This ride was near and dear to the late Jairo Alvarez. Ride this event once, and you’ll see why Jairo loved it so.
The Baton Rouge Bicycle Club is a financial supporter of this event.

11:00 AM – Broadmoor Methodist
11:30 AM – Goodwood Park
12:00 PM – 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.
