Bayou Lit Bikes (BLB) is a new bike rental company opening Friday, New Year's Day. Bayou Lit Bikes will offer a unique way to see the beauty of New Iberia while offering all the social distancing you need to stay safe.

These scenic and fun bike tours use the current 3-mile bike path along the Bayou Teche as a guide, keeping bikers on course.
An hour bike rental will set you back $20, $25 for two hours and an extra 5 bucks for each additional hour for daytime bike tours. Thursday and Sunday 7 p.m. nighttime tours are $25 per person. Friday and Saturday 8 p.m. nighttime tours are $30 per person. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, BLB will also offer glow in the dark bicycle tour rides. The tour will go along the downtown area of New Iberia along Bayou City Park and the Historic District of New Iberia.
Owner Ashley Cahee tells The Daily Iberian, "New Iberia is a very nice area".
There is a 3-mile bike path that really isn't utilized in New Iberia and that's what we're going to be using. It's along Main Street and we are going to go along by the bayou, through the city park and we come back around to Main Street. It's a great way for family and friends to get together and properly social distance and give them something to do. It's just for people to come out, have a nice time, get a little exercise in and have a nice time.-Cahee
