The 2017 CYCLE ZYDECO web site with official information is here.


I I have updated the section below with 2017 information BUT accuracy is not guaranteed. See the official site for official info. Some links are still from last year. The "Ride to" links below (for each date) are from the 2016 Cycle Zydeco. I expect similar if not identical routes this year.


April 18th: Leave KC @ 7:00 AM sharp for Shreveport (550 miles)– En route there is a stop at Macadoodles liquor store in Pineville, MO (a stone’s throw from the Arkansas line). Then on to the Fairfield Inn with a Mexican restaurant (Nicky’s) across the parking lot. This stop is a tradition with us. We party there and finish back at the motel.

April 19th: Travel to Lafayette (230 miles)- We have stopped at Natchitoches (at Lasyone’s for meat pies) and in Opelousas at Billy and Ray’s for Boudin along the way. There is a kick-off party that evening. The CZ web site itinerary for Wednesday is here.

You might enjoy the swamp boat tour at McGee's Atchafalaya Basin. We understand there will be a tour of Bayou Teche Brewery in Arnaudville (LA 31 beers). Also in Arnaudville is a great food stop at Myran’s Maison de Manger. Traveling on, look for “the tree” for a magnificent photo op. Another traditional stop for us has been Bourque’s Super Market in Port Barre (only on the longer route). The Jalapeno Sausage Cheese Bread is a treat. Horse racing at the Evangeline Downs appears to be off the schedule this year (the season doesn't begin April 6th). The city’s web site tells of a Music & Market series.
