Likely transfer to Alexandria/cenla area in the next few months. Just looking to hear if there are good riding roads in the area. Some kind of mountains as those typically have the twistier roads.

Currently I live about 30 minutes from the North Ga mountains and will miss the early morning rides through the mountains.
I guess I will be changing my name from PDRGA to PDRLA

I used to stationed at Ft Polk (Leesville), about an hour west of Alexandria. There's a national forest there and as expected there are lots of dirt roads running through that forest. You can find the curvy roads without looking too hard and it can get a little hilly if I remember correctly but far...FAR from mountainous, I think that's the area of the state where makes the transition from flat land to hill country, if I had to guess I'd say probably similar to the southern portion of GA. Just keep in mind though, it's been 15 years or so since I've been there. A good 'local' forum to check out is dualsportridersoflouisiana.com. A majority of the guys on there are based out of Baton Rouge but I know there a quite a few members in central/north LA.

I've lived in Louisiana all my life and am now about 100 miles north of Alexandria. You will be a short distance from the Forest Hill area of the Kistachie National Forest where there are maintained trails thru the forest(spark arrester required). For onroad riding, there are MANY 2-lane roads that are quite scenic with decent twisty curves. The highest elevation in La. is Mt. Driskill in Bienville Parish at about 580feet above sea level....or so. It's just a big hill. Where I live in Downsville, it is full of the 2-lane roads that meander through the countryside of farms and woods and it's quite hilly....lots of fun. You want to come up and ride with me, let me know and I'll show you some fun roads.
