In recognition of April being National Pecan Month, Louisiana-based Cane River Pecan Company donated 500 bags of natural pecan halves to be shared with cyclists at the Cycle Zydeco Festival, an event hosted by Transportation Recreation Alternatives in Louisiana (T.R.A.I.L.).

Cane River Pecan Company chose to donate the all-natural pecan halves for this event because they have the essential fats, protein vitamins and minerals necessary to keep the cyclists nourished throughout their 185-mile-long ride.

Scott Schilling, President of T.R.A.I.L., said, “The partnership between Cycle Zydeco and Cane River Pecan Company is only natural. Our participating cyclists have the opportunity to enjoy another local Louisiana food that will actually enhance their riding experience this week. The pecans given to us from Cane River will certainly sustain our riders and add to the overall flavor of the festival.”

The cyclists complete the 185-mile ride over the course of four days, March 31 – April 3. The ride begins in Lafayette, La. and cyclists pass through other towns like St. Martinville, Breaux Bridge, Opelousas, Mamou, Eunice and Scott. The daily rides end in surrounding towns with local entertainment including Cajun music concerts, Cajun dance lessons, crawfish boils, cooking demonstrations and local brewery tours.

“We are really excited to kick off our National Pecan Month celebration with our involvement in Cycle Zydeco,” said Cane River Pecan Company’s Chief Nut Officer (CNO) Jady Regard. “Louisiana is legendary for its food and its festivals. Our pecans will provide a natural fit with those riders wishing an all-natural boost during their ride while craving a cherished Louisiana food brand."
