BRBC Update – April 8,2014
Nearly 30 “A, B & C” Riders Wheel Out From Bains Elementary…

When will the winter end? That was the common question before Saturday, April 5th’s ride. Can’t say this ride was transcendental, as it was a bit chilly, but it certainly was fun! Saturday started a tad chilly, but nearly 30 riders from the BRBC, Geaux Race, and a few tag-alongs set out for another adventure on 2 wheel in the Felicianas. To keep this report brief, we’ll just say everybody had a great ride, and will be back for more!

Cycling cap tips go to first time rider Phillip, who rode with the “C” group on his fixie, no small task in the Felicianas. Also cap tips go to out of towners Charles LeBlanc from Lafayette, Steve Morrissette from Texas, and John Murphy (looks like Murphy, if I’ve got that wrong, sorry John) from Florida. Finally, a big thank you to Gerard Morgan leading the “A” group, Mike Constantin, for keeping the “B” group on their toes, and Herb Sumrall for leading the “C” group.

Keep a lookout for the next great combo group ride to be posted soon!
