Tuesday Loops is our weekly training race, meeting every week during daylight savings (March-Nov). It’s hard. It’s fast. It’s fun. The ride consists of three 10 mile loops on the New Orleans Lakefront. A group of around 25 riders meets at the steps of the New Orleans Museum of Art at 6pm for the first lap rollout. After a short warmup, the pace heats up as the group turns on to Lakeshore Drive. From there the ride heads to the end of LSD at the Armory and loops back toward the finish at Shelter #1 near West End. There is a regroup for laps 2 and 3 at Shelter #1 after completing each loop.
Because each loop is its own mini race with a full regroup at the end, riders who get dropped have the opportunity to restart with the group after each lap. If you are fast and want to pit your speed against some of the area’s other hardmen, or if you are not as fast but looking to get faster, Tuesday Loops is the ride for you.
