These are now past events, but I thought I'd share some photos of our recent theme rides. If anybody has suggestions for additional rides, or perhaps improvements, feel free to share.

For Bike month, BRASS organized three themed rides, Velo Dendro (Tree Ride), Velo Clio (History) & Velo Muerto (Cemetery). We took people on a short tour throughout Baton Rouge highlighting certain places. The rides were only about 13 miles total, with 2-3 mile legs. They were basically to educate people on certain aspects of the city that typically go unnoticed or have been forgotten about.

The first ride had a little over 30 people, but the second two exceeding our expectations with 58 & 63, respectively. We initially wanted to cap the rides at 40 people, but we couldn't turn anybody away. We were too pleased to see so many people take interest in riding. It has certainly given us hope for thr future.

We are planning another for the Fall and will likely do more next year as well.

Here are links to some of the photos taken for each ride: Velo Dendro (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ceedave/sets/72157605005307054/) Velo Clio (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ceedave/sets/72157605127211382/) Velo Muerto (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ceedave/sets/72157605256269624/)
