Adventure Cycling Ragin’ Cajun Tour – Part Five

October 11 – 23 We woke up prepared for the longest day of the tour at 57-miles, gear completely dried out and ready to ride on a windy, cold, and foggy day.  Setting out from camp we encountered strong winds that would alternately hit us from the front or side, but rarely from the back.  […]

Adventure Cycling Ragin’ Cajun Tour – Part Four

October 11 – 23 Packed and ready to go, I walked over to the big tent to put on my helmet, gloves and cycling shoes.  No sooner did I sit down to do so when something like twenty mosquitos hit each of my legs.  Swatting away while I finished dressing, I grabbed the bike and […]
