Meetup for Saturday 18 January Tammany Trace Trailhead, 419 N. New Hampshire St., Covington Louisiana
Hi folks this is a combo option where people could choose to ride a bike or just walk the trace. Please when you respond indicate your choice ride or walk. I personally will be riding my bike but still want walkers to attend. It will be the same route for both. We would meet in Covington at 11 am look around that town for about an hour then at 12 noon riders and walkers will head to Abita Springs a great ride or walk that goes over the Bogue Falaya River into downtown Abita Springs. Distance is 3.5 miles so takes about 1 hr 15 min to walk or about 30 to 45 to ride at a slow pace. At 1245 we will enjoy a nice dutch treat lunch in Abita Springs Brew Pub right in town before going back to Covington. (another 3.5 miles). It will be a full day but I think it would be very enjoyable. (Its about a 1-1/2 to 2 hr drive to Covington from the coast.
Just trying to do something a little different but everyone could enjoy. I've also talked to tri hard sports shop and got some sports items to give out as gifts in a drawing before we head out. It will be fun and I'm hoping for a big group whether it's to ride or walk.

On Wednesday's, the Covington Farmers Market offers fresh produce, light lunches, and live music. Stroll around town and visit its unique boutiques, restaurants and art galleries.

From Covington, it's a 3.55-mile ride over the Bogue Falaya River into downtown Abita Springs and the Abita Tourism Plaza, museum and children's playground. Abita is a popular stop because the Abita Brew Pub beckons bikers to take a break for a brew. And don't miss other trace-side attractions like the Abita Mystery House, restaurants, and art galleries.
