South / Re: Cycling The Natchez Trace

I am between Baton Rouge and Natchez.  I host a lot of cyclists through  If you are flying into BTR, I can pick you up at the airport or you can ride the fairly easy 29 miles to our place to get started. You can ship your bike via FedEx or UPS to a BTR bike shop, one in particular is Dave's Bike Shop, he will receive your bike, assemble it and meet you at the airport.  Lots of riders do just that.  From our place is a good day ride to the Southern Terminus of the Trace.  In the past few years, the Trace has gotten to be pretty popular with touring cyclists. 
BTW, the Natchez Trace is on my "to-do" list.

i agree, i mourn the loss of the ferry, but thought i would post the reality of the bridge being bike many states, do away with something traditional and no concessions are made for cyclists.


General Discussion / southern tier, st francisville ferry...good news

the state of louisiana is building a new bridge to replace the ferry at st. francisville, la..the good news is that the bridge is going to be bicycle friendly in the bike lane..the expansion joints are not tire gobblers. this is due to our wonderful, thoughtful, attentive bike club president here in this area.  the bad news..the ferry will probably be decommissioned, it was always part of the "sentimental journey".
the bridge is scheduled to open in the summer of 2011.  so until then, there will still be the ferry.

i live here and will try to notice and post things relevant..
