Cycle Zydeco 2015 is April 8th-12th, the week following Easter.  Louisiana's Cajun & Creole Cycling Festival's officially kicks off with a "Chubby Party."  Chubby Carrier and friends will get CZ rolling at Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette,  LA on Wednesday, April 8th.  You will see one of Corey Ledet's last performances before his "break"

You will  experience the heart of Acadiana from the padded seat of your pants with several live music venues each day, a nice variety of food, swamp tour, brewery tours, Scott Boudin Festival and much more.  The four days of cycling (Thursday - Sunday) will cover almost 200 miles.  If you need more miles or more intense cycling come in to town early and join any of the various group rides of all levels, check out the Itinerary - Pre CZ for more information. 

Starting with Chubby Carrier on Wednesday, the two wheel party will continue through Sunday.  Corey Ledet will be playing exclusively for Cycle Zydeco riders in the Yambilee building on Friday night.  Saturday night DL Menard will host his birthday party at the Liberty Theater in Eunice.  Sunday, Cycle Zydeco will finish at the Boudin Festival in Scott, LA.
