Cycle Louisiana 2001 Events:

The Jones Vaughn Creek Road Race Series - Jackson, Louisiana

January 14, 2001; February 11, 2001; and March 11, 2001

A road race in January? Whose brainchild was that one? We are always open to trying something new; we are hoping it might force us to actually train some before the race. However, training is not necessary or required. The race is only 45 miles, the course is rolling, and we hope it's cold (that way we can pretend we are in Belgium). It should warm up in February and March and the races should get faster as riders get in better shape. This race is an open category format with an A, B, and C Race. The C race is 23 miles and designed for new racers. Registration information is posted at

Rouge-Roubaix III - St. Francisville, Louisiana

April 1, 2001

Not a race, but "This ain't no Sissy Ride!" We moved it from February to April because a 95-mile death march should be little easier with a few miles in our legs. The challenge to this ride is simply survival. Lumpy, bumpy, dirt roads and smooth fast asphalt-a ride you will not forget! The following link illustrates the ambiance (sort of like stabbing yourself in the forehead with a fork, it feels good when you stop) of this ride:

Bike Fest 2001 - St. Francisville, Louisiana

May 5 & 6, 2001

We plan to expand last year's festival. Look for the Angola band, great food, plenty of racing and a wide variety of options for recreational riding.

Fall in the Felicianas - St. Francisville, Louisiana

September 8 & 9, 2000

Poker Run (Saturday)

Tunica Tango (Sunday)

The 2000 poker run was fun; 2001 will be even better. We think we know how to work that poker thing now. And, the Tunica Tango (my favorite race) returns! Surprisingly we didn't lose anyone during the inaugural version and, better yet, I didn't get sued. We plan to run it again. This time it will be an open category (all categories) format with an "A" and "B" Race. This one hurts, just check with those that raced this year.
