Race To The Ends Of The Earth...A Success

Thanks to all 13 riders who came out for the Baton Rouge edition of the Race To The Ends Of The Earth. The 3rd b.r.Alley Cat went off without too many hitches. We had one rider get in a small crash with a car, everyone was okay. 2 flat tires... Good times for bike riders!!!

The route was roughly 20 miles, depending on your course. The top five riders (Jason, Travis, Clayton, David, and Baine) all had a 1 mile, 3 lap circuit they had to ride once everyone else got back. That was to decide who got the cash prizes to the top two.

We had special spoke cards made for this race by Lauren and Mike. THANK YOU LAUREN AND MIKE!!!!!!!!! There were cards for each racer, then one of a kind cards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and DFL. They are truly amazing pieces of artwork!!!!!

Thanks again to everyone that came out. Please come out to the May rides, and contribute to Baton Rouge Bike Culture!!!!!!!

  1. It was a great race people, the organizers gave us ridiculous awesome tasks to do at the checkpoints and I completely passed one checkpoint guy because he was so discreet sitting on the back of his truck.

    Thanks so much for putting this on, I had a blast. Favorite quote, "THIS ISN'T OVER!!!" -Flag Pole, Parade Grounds
