Cyclists participating in the Highway 61 Challenge traveled through West Feliciana and East Baton Rouge parishes Saturday during a four-day, 500-mile journey from Memphis, Tennessee, to New Orleans.

The Highway 61 Challenge is owned and managed by Rockstar All Access, said founder Thomas Walls, and a part of the proceeds from the tour will benefit the Children's Hospital of New Orleans.

The challenge highlights the blues music and culture of the historic U.S. 61 route.
