Geaux Ride started as a group of friends finding a release with bike rides through New Orleans. In 2016, Charles Daniel opened Geaux Ride as a mobile business, and later launched its brick-and-mortar in downtown Baton Rouge in late 2019.
“It started as an outlet for me. I was working in corporate America,” Daniel says. “The pressures of the job became a burden. … I just wanted a good, fun outlet where I could recenter, recharge and reset.”
Now, visitors at its downtown headquarters are welcomed to rent bikes nearly any time and day of the week for self-guided tours, or join one if its many scheduled guided tours.
