This fully-supported cycling event offers bicyclists of all ability levels a wide array of marked routes through Louisiana’s premiere hill country, including a 10 mile fun ride, 36, 45 and 63 mile routes, and even an off-road tour venue. Come and experience the backroads of scenic West Feliciana Parish as you pedal your way under the shade of century-old live oaks, navigate its big hills and deep hollows, leisurely steer your way past beautiful pastoral scenes and traverse the sandy creeks over low-water bridges.
