Join Us for the Connect the Nine Community Festival & Bike Ride!

The ride, which begins at 10:30am at the Green Project (2831 Marais), will take riders across the St. Claude Avenue Bridge, stop at the Make It Right houses and Bayou Bienvenue, and culminate in a free community festival at the Lower 9th Ward Village.
In addition to the community bicycle workshop, the festival will include:
-A basic bicycle repair station
-Free food & beverages
