Join Us for the Connect the Nine Community Festival & Bike Ride! Come learn what we can do as a community to provide better resources, access, and improve road conditions and our safety in the Lower 9 and 9th Ward. 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
-Bicycle light giveaways
-Tabling by local community organizations
-“Make the St. Claude Bridge Safe” petition signing
-A personal stories video booth to gather input from the community

We hope to see you there!
