Don't Get Dropped!
Hop on a wheel and ride the NOBC winter training ride series.
This photo shows the front
part of the group about 15 miles into a 1995 winter training ride
that started in Abita Springs. The riders are on one of the few
flat stretches of road, and are heading North toward Louisiana
Tung Road. The rider looking over his shoulder is local Cat. 1
rider Kenny Bellau, who rides for the Herring Gas team based in
Jackson MS. These rides usually attract about 15 riders or so,
depending on the weather, and speeds vary from the upper teens
to the low 30's. We try (not always successfully) to keep the group
together on the way out, but the ride back is often rather brisk for the
lead group. Thankfully, the group usually splits on the watchtower
hill otherwise known as the "Col de Watchtower" just outside of
Enon and about 23 miles from Abita Springs.
