The rides will meander across the cypress-lined bayou region of Central Louisiana, taking you through an authentic Belgian farming community with fields of cotton, soy beans, corn, and grain sorghum. Participants on these rides will experience varied landscapes and topography and see historic homes and churches, wildlife and traditional livestock of the region. Along the route there will be special points of interest highlighted on the map, these points all have significance to the history of the area. Hidden in the bayous, beneath the bald cypress groves and old growth pine, is a world of natural beauty, excitement, learning, recreation, resources and wildlife in their purest form. During the event the Kent House will be open for free tours by costumed docents as well as ongoing period demonstrations such as, open hearth cooking, candle and soap making, butter churning, quilting and much more. There will be something for everyone. Saturday morning after the ride a rest and relaxation tent will be available for anyone needing refreshments, snacks and complimentary massages. An After Ride Party will feature Louisiana music, plenty of food and drink; the perfect place to relax after a long ride. ​For additional information, please call the Kent House office at 318-487-5998 or go to to register for the event of your choice.   Come see us on the bayou, laissez les bicyclettes rouler!
