"Tour du Cafe"
Here is your invitation from our friends, the Baton Rouge Bike Club, for "Tour du Cafe" Teachable Moment Ride held most every Sunday (weather permitting). Join us for a mid-day relaxed pace ride with a choice of distances.
Ride starts from the Broadmoor Methodist Parking lot (Molylea Drive @ Sharp Road) at 11 a.m. for 40 miles.
We pick up riders at Goodwood Park at 11:30 a.m. for 30 miles.
For 20 miles, we pick up 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), with teachable moments, so be prepared to come away with more bike and traffic skills on the bike than when you started.
We will stop several times, including a stop downtown for coffee or other refreshments.
