Providing support to commuting bicyclists year-round!

Just in time for NOLA Bike to Work Day, Bike Easy will be launching a brand new program to provide support to bicyclists year-round!

What are Bike Trains?

Bike trains are groups of individuals who bicycle to work together, led by volunteer “conductors.”

NOLA Bike Trains – Powered by Entergy are a collaboration between Entergy and Bike Easy, with weekly morning routes helping folks get to work in a safe, fun way. It’s basically NOLA Bike to Work Day, but year-round – and this is the first-ever program of its kind in New Orleans.

NOLA Bike Trains provide a community of support for everyone – from first-timers to pros.

Join a NOLA Bike Train!

Our first NOLA Bike Trains will launch on Friday, April 11th with three pilot routes. Our two Mid-City routes will meet on Fridays at Bayou St. John and Orleans Avenue, with one heading to the Central Business District, while the second route ends at the University of New Orleans Lakefront campus. Our Uptown to CBD route will begin Thursday, April 17th, with two stops – one at Audubon Park and the second at St. Charles and Antonine. Check out the routes and the map below, and be in touch if you have other route suggestions or questions!
