Bike Easy Spoketacular
A note from Dan Favre, Executive Director, on the upcoming Spoketacular!
In my almost three and half years at Bike Easy, I’ve enjoyed hearing countless stories of the organization’s history. The first big victory in 2004 with dedicated funds for bicycling infrastructure included in the bond measure that passed. Youth bike rodeos before we really had the equipment for it. So many good stories that Bike Easy Members like you have made possible!
I can’t wait to hear more of them when we gather at the Bike Easy Spoketacular to celebrate our 15th anniversary! That’s right, it’s been 15 years of making bicycling easy, safe, and fun for everyone in Greater New Orleans.
- Bike Easy Spoketacular
- Saturday, October 20th – 6 pm to 10 pm
- The Pythian – 234 Loyola Avenue
This is going to be a fantastic party! Our friends at The Pythian are hosting, great local restaurants who are bringing their finest flavors, and the drinks will be flowing. We’ll have fun activities and ways to get involved, along with some special recognition for those who have gone above and beyond in getting us where we are today.
Bike Easy Members receive discounted tickets, and you can also buy your ticket and sign-up/renew your Membership in one package. VIB (Very Important Bicyclist) tickets get you in an hour early for the best treats and access to a special area on the Pythian rooftop! If you can’t make it until later, we’ve got a low-cost option for the night owls.
When I started my new job at Bike Easy almost three and a half years ago, I was immediately struck by the passion and enthusiasm of all the people involved with the organization and the greater movement for improving the region through better bicycling. From the board members and staff to members and volunteers, it was incredible to feel so much energy behind this incredible organization. And it’s only been growing since then! I can’t wait to gather with everyone to celebrate the last 15 years and keep building momentum into the future.
See you at the Bike Easy Spoketacular on Saturday, October 20th!
