    Yeah, we partnered up on the forum since we're so close geographically (lots of the same forum members). We still have our NOMAMBO website for club info and such though.

    No worries, though - I was just being a smartarse!

    Nate, you can also add this one to your post for Lafayette, this is a road bike club, we dont have a mountain bike club in Lafayette. I use their route regularly.

    Hi gang, looking for opportunities to ride my new 29er bike on trails, etc around the Lafayette region. Pretty new at this, haven't discovered the places yet. Mid-aged re-entry rider looking for exercise, etc. Nothing too hardcore, but enjoy new outdoor adventures, gps/routing, etc. Would welcome suggestions for short weekday jaunts, as well as daytrips. Trails best, sidewalks ok, but minimal mixing with cars preferred, but tolerated.
    All suggestions appreciated. Thx!

    How far is Baton Rouge from NO? About an hour? I couldn't find any trail reviews on this site for the NO area. Are there any for some trails within about a half hour of NO?

    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    New trail at Cypress Bend Resort, on Lake Toledo Bend near Many,LA. Trail open now, but Grand Opening & Fast Lap Challenge info found at www.cypressbendresort.com/trails:

    5 possible loops ranging from 1-6 miles, can be ridden consecutively to create longer distances. Fast trail that requires strength and skill to conquer. Traverses over highest point in region to lakeside. Nine pine log bridges, 3 12" wide raised sections totaling 70', a lot of flow with off-camber descents and full range of turn angles.

    Can anyone recommend a good shop to rent a demo MTB either in Baton Rouge or on the North Shore? Would prefer full suspension but will settle for a decent HT.

    LOCO for the Shreve/Bossier/Minden area trails

    Louisiana State Championship | The 2012 LA XC Series of Mountain Bike Racing for the State MTB racing series info

    And Monroe has one trail, the Forsythe loop, which is a short but fun trail in a local city park. We hold a couple of night races there each year. Probably one happening later this fall. nelacycling.org • Index page for the Monroe/WestMonroe info.

    Pretty new to the mountain biking thing, I'm from around the Lafayette area. Plan to check out some of the area state parks, I hear Comite is nice, I'll ride the Spillway when we go to visit the girlfriend's family in Metarie. I recently checked out this place and had fun. It's worth checking out if you're nearby.
