Watch for Bike and Build cyclists as they make a stop in Natchitoches


*** Update***  they have been delayed and will arrive tomorrow, Saturday, June 2.

Drive carefully and be on the lookout for a group of cyclists with the Bike and Build program as they make a stop in Natchitoches Friday morning on their way to Shreveport.  Their route will take them up Hwy 1 then to I-49 after a stop at Trinity Episcopal Church for a breakfast of fruit salad, sweet potato biscuits and Grillades and Grits

The Bike & Build program engages young adults in service-oriented cycling trips to raise money and awareness for the affordable housing cause. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that fosters a sustained connection to community. They advocate for the need for affordable housing in thousands of communities across the country.

NOTE: Grillades (pronounced GREE-ahds) and Grits is a Southern dish that originated in New Orleans and is traditionally served for breakfast or brunch. It is served at home, at weddings and parties, and even at classy debutante balls. Grillades are little steak medallions.
