Shake Your Trail Feather Festival (Trail Feathers Peddle & Paddle)
Sat, October 21, 2017, 6:30 AM – 12:30 PM CDT
The Trail Feathers Peddle and Paddle is part of the TECHE Project’s Shake Your Trail Feather Festival held at Parc du Pont in Breaux Bridge. The bike ride and travels through St. Martin Parish to Henderson, Cecilia, Bayou Portage, Arnaudville, and Poche Bridge, depending on which route you take. There are 2 routes (20, and 40 miles), and each of the routes has an option to jump into a canoe or kayak (boat included in fee) and paddle from Poche Bridge to Breaux Bridge where you will float with a live cajun jam band in the Trail Feathers boat parade! The 2 hour float trip will finish at the festival park just in time for the main event music to start. Your bike will be transported by TRAIL to the festival grounds where it will be waiting for you when you arrive. If you choose not to do the paddle trip, add another 7 miles to the ride from Poche Bridge to the festival.
Registration includes SAG provisions (Craklins at Poches for all & Bayou Teche Brewery stop for 40-milers), t-shirt, complimentary lunch and beverages, including a brew for the float trip. If you have your own boat and want to do the paddle trip, that’s okay, but you will need to drop off your locked boat at Poche Bridge beforehand (sign up for bike only with transport option). If you do not have a bike, that’s okay too. TRAIL is offering a special discount for bike rentals at $15. Contact LATRAIL for bike rentals. You can contact Patti Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org for general questions.
