The fun and social way to exercise!
Getting Ready for a Ride
Taking a Coffee Break
We sponsor two types of weekly rides. Our City Rides are easy going and social, not races (only about 8 – 10 mph). They are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 9 AM, and usually run about 3 hours, including a mid-ride coffee break. They start in City Park, in front of the museum. We always wear our yellow vests on City Rides. Come do a city ride with us, and afterward, if you decide to join our club ($20) you get a FREE vest.
Our Country Rides take place on Saturday or Sunday, usually in the area north of Lake Pontchartrain. While the whole group starts out together, typically we separate into smaller groups, each riding at their own preferred pace. There are usually multiple route options and distances to choose from and detailed maps are always provided. Often riders will regroup and socialize at a convenience store along the route. The ride leader makes sure that everyone signs in on the ride log sheet at the beginning of the ride, and signs out at the end. The ride leader will not leave after the ride until all riders are accounted for, and will backtrack the route to look for anyone who does not return within a reasonable time and offer assistance if necessary. Please check the Calendar for upcoming country rides.
Bring your helmet (a must!) and join us on either a City Ride or a Country Ride. You will make new friends and enjoy yourself. Below is a picture of some of our members who got together with a Minnesota Bike Club that visited New Orleans. We all rode together and had a great time. Ride with us and have some fun!!!
