Geaux Ride On The Geaux
Baton Rouge native Charles Daniel found himself amidst the pressures of corporate America looking for a new way to balance his mental health. As a Corporate Data Analyst in Greater New Orleans for the past 10 years, Daniel found himself carrying the weight of his position. Daniel would go into large corporations and replace people with the newest and latest data practices. Daniel began bicycling in New Orleans as a means of mental health outlet, exercise and a new way for a small group of friends to socialize after work. This weekly outing rapidly grew from the original group of nine to hundreds of participants. The excitement of seeing New Orleans from two wheels sparked a new biking culture that spawned other social groups, custom bicycle clubs and eventually a business of offering guided tours as a service.On a visit home, biking through beautiful downtown Baton Rouge, Daniel realized his home community needed an outlet as well. One that would bring families and friends together outside of this digital age. Saving the last checks from his final corporate contract,
10 bikes and a trailer were purchased.
