The mission of the Baton Rouge Bike Club is to work as a group to encourage and promote bicycling as a way of life and as a safe and enjoyable recreation and transportation option.
We see a future when the Baton Rouge area is a place where the infrastructure and culture allows anyone to go anywhere, anytime; safely, confidently, and conveniently by bicycle; when the club exists only to celebrate and appreciate the joy of cycling
The club organizes weekly rides both in town and out of town, for beginning and experienced riders. The club sponsors several annual events, the largest of which are Spring and Fall Century rides held in May and October respectively.

Echoing Lisa's comment- the Bayou Paul loop including to the manchac closure is 14.8 miles . For fun a jog off Bayou Paul at Etta and Arthur dr There is a deranged dog which will give chase for a good sprint.Weekends there are more bikes than cars on the road there.
Do stay off Perkins and Highland.There are 2 ghost bikes around the Pollard entrance and another was killed at the entrance of WoodStone on Highland years back. (7 hours ago)
