Riding in New Orleans

Hey
I just moved to NOLA and I'm looking for a nice 40 to 60 mile bike route to do weekly exercise rides on. Does anybody have any suggestions?

The Tammany Trace across the lake is about 27 miles one way. Could loop it for a nice 50ish (54) mile ride. I just posted a link in another thread. Here it is again:

Check out Crescent City Cyclists. They do city rides each week of about 20-30 miles as well as more intense (friendly intense) rides on the northshore of the lake. They usually start out around the trace then head out to low travelled country roads for anywhere from 40 to 60 miles. Around the city, the terrain is pretty flat but once you get to the northshore, there are some hills that make it fun. For the summer, they've started having Wed night rides on the levee of various distances.

I just started riding with them and they seem like a nice group of people...experience and skilled cyclists but not hard core racer types.

More information here...

They are only friendly towards white americans. If you are a minority dont bother riding with them. They will act like you are somewhere you dont belong. Then again most of the south is that way towards minorities.

Do you know this from first hand experience? I admit that I'm new to the group but that's definitely not the vibe I got at all.
