NATCHEZ — For travelers Toby Thibodeaux and his family, the best way to see Natchez is by bicycle.

The Thibodeauxs, Toby, his wife Terri, and his parents Bonnie and Clyde, spent their weekend touring Natchez by way of bicycle.

Starting at the Eola Hotel, they rode down Main Street to Canal Street, down John R. Junkin Drive to Homochitto Street, then down Martin Luther King Jr. Street back to the Eola.

“I don’t really know the streets here, but we just made the big circle, said Bonnie.

Bonnie and her husband even took a bike trip from the hotel to Shoney’s Saturday morning for a quick breakfast.

“We ride all the time,” she said.

The group’s weekend tour was the third time they have biked through Natchez.

“It’s a beautiful town and I’m a tourist so I guess we go wherever these wheels take us,” Toby said.
