About Cycle Zydeco

Cycle Zydeco is a four-day casual touring ride in South Louisiana. The ride takes place every year the week after Easter, and includes great food, live music, and the finest flat roads Louisiana has to offer.

Cycle Zydeco is a festival on wheels. Experience mouthwatering Cajun cuisine and live performances by the best bands in Louisiana. The ride includes tours of many attractions, and options for camping or staying in hotels. Immerse yourself in Acadiana: the birthplace of Zydeco, home to Cajuns and Créoles alike, and one of the most unique cultures in the United States.

The priorities of Cycle Zydeco:

  1. EAT

  2. DANCE

  3. DRINK

  4. RIDE A BICYCLE TO THE NEXT FESTIVE LOCATIOn 

The main routes average about 40 miles (65 km) per day. We also offer longer route options each day that average over 62 miles (100 km). All routes include points of interest such as brewery tours, swamp tours and other good times that you will find in Acadiana.
