2017 “Red Bug Hill Challenge” Saturday, May 13, 2017, St. Francisville, La

We offer four different rides so everyone can find one that is just right for them. All the rides provide beautiful scenery and a satisfying trip through the rolling hills of pleasant Saint Francisville, LA. If you’ve spent some time on a bike you probably already know about the miles and miles of quiet roads St. Francisville has to offer. Just a short trip from Baton Rouge makes for a noticeable difference in terrain.
