NOLA Bike to Work Day 2017
Ride to work with fellow commuters and gather to celebrate biking in Lafayette Square
11–12 Apr 2017
Bike trains depart multiple locations. Morning & evening meet ups in Lafayette Square.
NOLA Bike to Work Day is back for a 6th year! Come join your fellow bike commuters to share the joy of biking – the healthy, easy, and cheap way to get to work – and the over 100 miles of bikeways that enable us to ride to work safely. Bike to Work Day helps introduce more people to bike commuting, shows our collective strength in numbers, and demonstrates why New Orleans is in the top 10 American cities for bike commuting.
This year, during the morning gathering we will also launch NOLA’s first month long Bike Easy Challenge!
