Zydeco Day 5 – Breaux Bridge to Opelousas – 48 miles

Several of our group decided not to ride today because of a very rainy weather forecast. But 6 of us decided to try and had a marvelous morning riding – some wind, but no rain and some sun. We stopped for lunch in Arnaudville at the Little Big Cup and had an excellent meal.

Just as we were finishing lunch, the clouds rolled in with lightning and thunder so JoAnn, Janelle, Dick and I decided to sag. Rick H, and Gary decided to continue riding and they finished in the wind and rain. We all shuttled back to Lafayette took showers and got ready for dinner at the Social restaurant. Again – excellent food!
Lots of discussion about logistics of getting our bikes where they need to be for the ride tomorrow when the weather is supposed to be sunny but cooler. We have never before stayed at one location and started and stopped riding at a different location. Doing it this way we are missing some of the activities that we would have participated in.
