I have been wanting to do this event since it was first scheduled five years ago. Well, I finally took the plunge and will be riding from Houston to New Orleans in six days for a total of 533 miles (average of 88 miles per day). I depart Houston on May 4, 2014 and will roll into New Orleans on May 9. All I can say is that there are many weeks of training my legs and rear in the coming months!
The Tour du Rouge supports American Red Cross Chapters along the Gulf Coast from Houston to New Orleans.
The American Red Cross provides emergency assistance when people are forced from their homes by fires, floods or other disasters.
