Tour du Rouge

Wednesday, on day four of the six-day Tour du Rouge, riders cycled from Abbeville to Morgan City, a total of 76.6 miles. They stopped in Franklin for lunch at Parc sur la Teche, provided by Cypress Bayou Casino. This is the fourth year in a row that Franklin has hosted the riders for lunch on the fourth day of the ride. Riders continued on to Morgan City, stopping for the night at the Holiday Inn.
