"Rite of Passage" ride...

The BRBC and CCC invite you to the annual "Rite of Passage" ride, Thursday 31 Dec 2009 at 9AM from Greensburg LA.

This tradition ride is a way to mark the end of the 2009 cycling season, and look forward to 2010. Jim Turner and I have been hosting this ride every New Year's Eve since 2001 (maybe longer, ???) in whatever weather. At the end of the ride we will enjoy turkey gumbo, cabbage, black-eyed peas, and whatever you may choose to bring.

Starting (and ending point) is the parking lot just beyond the the LA-10 east truck stop in Greensburg. Ride departs at 9AM so plan accordingly including clothing for the expected cool temperatures and rain. (between 45 and 55 degrees, and between 20% and 50% chance of rain) Course is the same as last year's (see link) and goes to Gillsburg MS and back for 35 miles and 1200 ft of climbing.

Best way to get there for CCC riders is I-55 to the LA-10 exit, then west (left) towards Greensburg.

Others take either I-12 east to the Walker exit (LA-447), then north to Walker and a right turn on US-190. Continue to LA-449 turn left, and follow it to the end at LA-37 (make a jog right then left in Pine Grove). At LA-37 turn right to the end in Greensburg, where you turn right again on LA-10 to the truck stop. (1:15 from BR)

If you live North of Florida in Baton Rouge, you can consider Greenwell Springs road (LA-37) which is the shortest way to Greensburg, but if you do be aware of the enforced 45 speed limit in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Call or reply if you need more information, or have additions or corrections.

Sweet Spot

Lower-end carbon road frames rarely approach greatness, but the new Six Carbon offers a truly superb ride that's everything you expect from a modern carbon road machine: it's lively, smooth-riding and stiff in all the right ways

You can feel the Carbon 6's elite pedigree as it races down fast descents like a freight train, yet it feels grounded, predictable and responsive when you want it to be

Buy It If - you need to spend less but want a bike with the great handling and ride of a modern carbon road machine
