Connect the Crescent Tour and Bike Safety Workshop
Sat, Nov 03, 2018
1:00 – 3:30 pm
Start at Basin St. & St. Louis St.
Join Bike Easy’s education team for a brief bicycle safety workshop followed by a group ride exploring each element of the Connect the Crescent network.
After the ride you’ll have a chance to fill out a survey to share your input on the project, as well as pick up a set of free bike lights!
Connect The Crescent is a demonstration of a continuous, protected network consisting of enhanced crosswalks, improvements to transit, and protected bikeways which feature barriers separating people biking from automobile traffic on routes leading to and through New Orleans’ French Quarter and Central Business District.
This 3-month demonstration, which ends in mid-December, will serve as an opportunity to start a community discussion. We expect the Connect The Crescent network to be experienced by tens of thousands of residents and visitors. We hope it’s safety, accessibility, convenience, and community programs lead to permanent infrastructure improvements across New Orleans and the region.
