I recently completed my first fully supported bike tour, called Rajun Cajun. I’m looking forward to writing about it, but for now, I’m just going to post some pictures. The tour had many fun firsts. It was the first time someone came with my, my wonderful girlfriend Ruth. It was also my first organized bike tour and the first event I attended with Adventure Cycling. It was also the largest bike tour I’ve been on since there were about 70 cyclists total.
The pictures below are from Day 0, 1, & 2. (Day zero is the day we traveled to Louisiana.) I hope to add pictures from other days soon.
