Tour du Rouge
Cyclists participating in the fifth annual Tour du Rouge stopped for a light lunch Wednesday in Franklin on the grounds of Parc sur la Teche. More than 100 riders are travelling from Houston to New Orleans to raise awareness and funding for the American Red Cross, a total of 526 miles. They left Franklin for Morgan City where they stayed the night, and were expected to reach New Orleans Friday afternoon. Lunch for Franklin’s stopover was provided by Cypress Bayou Casino.
