Covington has hosted many bicycle races over the past several years, and this Sunday was the 46th Annual Tour de Louisiane Bike Race. Dozens of cyclists rode the 1.25 kilometer challenging course (eight turns) with a slight to moderate breeze to contend with. The races took place in the historic downtown area from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the New Orleans Bicycle Club on hand to oversee and coordinate the event. Here are some photographs.
