Louisiana Hills and Hollows Bicycle Tour
Sat, May 27, 2017, 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM CDT
This fully-supported cycling event offers bicyclists of all ability levels a wide variety of marked routes through Louisiana’s premiere hill country, including 36, 45 and 65 mile routes as well as a 10 mile fun ride and even an off-road tour venue. Come and experience the backroads of scenic West Feliciana Parish as you pedal your way under the canopies of century-old live oaks, navigate its big hills and deep hollows, leisurely steer your way past beautiful pastoral scenes and traverse the sandy creeks over low-water bridges. The tours will start and end at the magnificent West Feliciana Sports Park, which is also home to “The Beast”, Louisiana’s foremost 6.5 mile off-road biking trail, for those mountain bikers desiring an alternate and memorable experience.
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. Francisville, the proceeds of this charitable event will serve to benefit the “Keep West Feliciana Beautiful” organization in their ongoing campaign against litter, as well as support West Feliciana Parks and Recreation’s master plan to promote cycling in the area.
The entry fee is $40 per rider and includes a customized event t-shirt, water bottle, and a delicious, post-ride meal. Late registration is $50 after May 19th. To make the event more enjoyable, there will be ample rest stops / restrooms along the routes and SAG Wagons and Patrol Vehicles, as well as a Law Enforcement and EMS presence for traffic control and medical assistance. Be advised that this tour is not a race, but rather for personal enjoyment and satisfaction in knowing that you helped a good cause while having a lot of fun with family and friends.
SNELL or ANSI approved helmets are required for all participants, and all entrants must be at least 12 years of age. Participants under the age of 18 will require the written consent of their Parent(s) or Legal Guardian.
