Subject: Any BTers near Baton Rouge?
I will be attending LSU for a 3 week course this summer and am looking for some local advise for swim, bike, and run locations. Are there any good public pools near the university or do you know if part time students have access to the university's facilities? Any good group rides? Any good run routes? Just trying to do some research before I get there.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

Hey Chris,

Here's some info on access to the rec center http://lsuuniversityrec.com/lsuurec/membership/membershipcategories... Lots of folks run the LSU lakes and the levee, guess it depends on the distances you're wanting to run (http://www.mapmyrun.com/us/baton-rouge-la/) Unfortunately there aren't tons of local options for bike routes but plenty of cyclist ride from the L'auberge Casino or from "the split" or Alligator Bayou, and if you want to ride in "the hills" there is St. Francisville. There seems to be group rides pretty frequently and at all paces. You can PM me if you'd like. Hope that helps at least kickstart the research and an early welcome to the Boot!

Hey Chris,
We have several YMCA's available with outdoor and indoor pools. You may want to check out BRTRI or The Bicycle Shop facebook page for some group ride information. Lots of places to run, including around the LSU lakes, running path on top of the MS River levee. It runs from just past LSU campus all the way into down town by the casinos and the USS Kidd.

Hey Chris,
Lots of good information above there is a group that does ride out of City Park (near LSU) but the best riding is down in the Alligator Bayou area (IMHO as I live in that area). I usually ride Saturday mornings if you want a riding partner. Quite a few group rides come thru here also.

Good luck!

Thanks for the leads. Not sure where I'll be spending my weekends, might be in the Kenner/Metarie area or along the Northshore. Will definitely be making some runs around the lake by campus and along the levee. On a different topic, other than the Bridgeman Duathlon on June 8th, are there any triathlons in the BR/NOLA/Northshore area in the month of June?
