The Cajun Cyclists are a group of enthusiasts whose main goal is to promote the sport of bicycling in South Louisiana. The organization's backbone is comprised of a group of dedicated volunteers who spend countless hours to make our goal a reality. Their efforts include leading rides, bicycle advocacy, event organization, website maintenance, club finances, and of course logging many miles throughout the year.
The club began in the early 1980's as a small group of bike riders who regularly left from Pack & Paddle on Pinhook Road on Saturday mornings. The rides back then were known as Bakery or Pastry Rides, as they usually had a stop for sweets halfway through the ride. To this day, rides still leave from Pack & Paddle at 8:00 am every Saturday morning throughout the year. Riders of all levels enjoy riding on a number of mapped and marked routes to various locations in neighboring towns. Most routes are about 35-40 miles. Riders of all levels and ages are invited to participate in our rides; the only requirement is that you wear a helmet. We also have a set of organized rides on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Please refer to our ride schedule for more details.
The Cajun Cyclists Bicycle Club is a dues-free organization and its membership is open to anyone. Becoming a member of our club is as simple as attending one of our rides.
