New Roads hosting bike ride, paddle board race

NEW ROADS, LA (WAFB) - A group of volunteers in New Roads has organized a bike ride and the first-ever paddle board race on False River on May 24 and 25.

These  organizers say New Roads is perfect for cycling, water sports, and hiking. Money from these two events will raise funds to make New Roads ripe for tourism in that way. Saturday, beautiful False River will host a paddle board event for kids and adults. Sunday, Velo Le Poste De Pointe Coupee is a bicycle ride that can be 10 miles, 26 miles, and even 52 miles.
