Get back on the Saddle
Dust off that old bike, or walk up to see how you can incorporate bicycle riding into your everyday life.
Through hands-on activities, we’ll answer the questions:
“How can I ride most safely in New Orleans?”
“What is the right bike for me?”
All are welcome, especially adults and their families (children, grandparents and friends). Through hands-on activities we’ll help build your confidence to integrate bicycling into your everyday tasks. More bicycling will make you feel healthier, more connected to your community and relieve stress.
