Louisiana Bicycle Festival

The Saturday Before Father's Day In Abita Springs



La. Bicycle Festival Lodging

Lodging Ideas for the Bicycle Festival. When inquiring about their prices - tell them you are coming to the festival. Some of the accommodations have discounts for festival participants.

Also we have had many reports that Priceline.com has given some really cheap rooms recently.

There is a small vintage roadside motel that still keeps nice rooms outside of Covington. It is the Green Springs Motel, the phone number is (not toll free) 895-892-4686. It is about the same distance from the chain motels.

The Abita B&B is about 3 miles away; the guys who run this place are fans of the UCM. They have a swimming pool and lots of trees.

Also in Mandeville, about 11 miles away, is the guest house Marvilla. It is about 600 feet from Lake Ponchartrain. The guy who runs this place is a real big fan of the UCM - plus he is my brother-in-law. He has groovy kayaks that he allows guest to use in the lake. He has kayaks and bicycle available for his guests at no extra charge!

About 12 miles away is Fontainebleau State Park. This is a large park on the lake with lots of camping sites.
