Cycling for Independence is sponsoring a ride May 1 – 4, 2013 from Delta, LA. to Airline High School in Bossier City. This group is headed by a handcyclist and they are raising awareness and funds for a Neurological rehabilitation/research hospital in Shreveport. There is a $30 fee all riders and they can ride the whole trip or just part. Their website: www.IndependenceRegained.org.

Please note that Ellerbe Road Baptist allows us to use their lot. We are guests there. Park on the west side of the lot, pick up all trash. Refrain from offensive language. DON’T USE THE LOT ON WEDNESDAYS, SUNDAYS or other days the church reserves for its exclusive use. A guideline for our continued list was recently provided. See below:
1. Under no circumstances should anyone eliminate bodily waste on the property.
2. No one has permission to change clothes, in their car or otherwise, on the church property. We have received complaints even from other riders about this practice.
3. On Saturdays, please do not park on the north row (closest to Leonard Road) so that our yard maintenance personnel can mow and edge the parking lot without fear of hitting a car with equipment or flying debris. Everyone parks in the church parking lots at their own risk. The church assumes no responsibility or liability for loss or damage to the parker’s property in any circumstance.
