BEER, BIKES AND BAYOUS
NEW ORLEANS, LA
What goes better with beer and biking than amazing food. Escape this winter and enjoy the best Louisiana has to offer. On this adventure we will ride along the Great River Road, the Tammany Trace, rural roads through wildlife refuges and through the big easy of New Orleans. The ride is almost completely flat so this is a great trip for a first time bicycle touring adventure.
Day 1 - New Orleans
Our first night together will be spent exploring the Big Easy. We will take a short ride through town before sampling some great local beer and having a wonderful pre-ride Cajun dinner.
Day 2 - New Orleans - Vacherie ~ 61 miles
Our first days ride is along the levees that protect the city. You will amble along the Great River Road. We will end our day exploring plantations as we enter Garyville. Tonight we will have another great Cajun meal.
Day 3 Vacherie to Baton Rouge ~ 68 miles
In Baton Rouge we will rest after our ride and enjoy beer from the local favorite Tin Roof Brewing and The Chimes restaurant with tons of beer on tap.
Day 4 Mandeville and the North Shore
Today is another longer ride with a wonderful reward. During the ride you will see oak lined roads and beautiful rural Louisiana.
