Routebeschrijving

Having sampled some of Austin’s live music the cyclists will head out of town along peaceful country roads, past small farms and through friendly towns. In La Grange, the riders can visit the ruins of one of the state’s first breweries before saddling up and continuing east to Navasota, named the Blues Capital of Texas in honour of local blues musician Mance Lipscomb. The route passes through the expansive Sam Houston National Forest, home to the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker and soaring bald eagles before crossing into Louisiana. A rest day in the town of DeRidder allows the riders to explore its famous Hanging Jail where condemned prisoners would meet their end in full view of their fellow inmates.

Then bayous start to appear and there is a hint of voodoo in the air. The strains of Cajun music can be heard as the cyclists pedal through cypress trees shrouded in Spanish moss towards their next rest day in Lafayette. Here they can sample incredible Cajun cuisine (locals claim they cook every part of the pig except the squeal), learn about the history of the Acadians, expelled by the British from Atlantic Canada in the 1700’s who form the basis of Cajun culture or take a spooky swamp tour through the nearby bayous. The riders now pedal across the Atchafalaya and Mississippi Rivers on their way to The Big Easy, New Orleans where they can celebrate the end of this section with a Sazerac - a mix of rye whiskey, bitters and absinthe that originated in the bayou, the official drink of the city.
