Spoketacular is this Saturday
Saturday, October 20th
Did you know, in 2003 members of the New Orleans Regional Bicycle Action Committee attended a Thunderhead Alliance training in bicycle advocacy and created the Metro Bicycle Coalition – what we now know today as Bike Easy!
In 2018 we commemorate 15 years of making bicycling easy, safe, and fun for everyone in Greater New Orleans. Join us at Seven Three Distilling Company on Saturday, October 20th to celebrate our history, successes, and the dedication of so many individuals who have brought us to this point!
Bike Easy 15th Anniversary Spoketacular
Saturday, October 20th – 7pm to 10pm
NEW LOCATION: Seven Three Distilling, 301 N. Claiborne Ave.
Growing from one paid staff starting in 2010 to eight staff members currently, the passion of people who love biking in our region continues to propel the success of Bike Easy. From advocacy for better bridge crossings such as the newly opened Wisner Bridge, securing inclusion of bicycle accommodations in the post-Katrina Submerged Roads Programs in 2007, to increasing bicycle safety education for youth across our region, Bike Easy volunteers and staff push for Greater New Orleans to be the best place to ride a bike in the country.
Online ticket sales will end at NOON on Saturday, October 20th and all tickets will increase by $10 at the door.
The Bike Easy 15th Anniversary Spoketacular is a party you don’t want to miss! Your ticket includes an impressive spread by local restaurants including shrimp and grits from Dooky Chase, bread pudding from Dicky Brennan’s, late-night pizza from Reginelli’s and so much more! Raise a toast to Bike Easy with Abita Beer, Jackson Family Wine, or Seven Three Distilling batch cocktails all while dancing to the sounds of Meryl Zimmerman. Throughout the night you will learn about the origins of Bike Easy and have the opportunity to share anniversary wishes for continued success in making our region easy, safe, and fun for everyone riding bikes in Greater New Orleans!
Thank you to the Spoketacular sponsors!
