Last month, Bike Easy hosted the annual Bicycle Second Line. It was a huge success, and we were able to meet fundraising goals and were also amazed by the number of participants from New Orleans’ blossoming bike community that turned out. We counted over 300 attendees and raised over 10k for our programming!

We are also happy to receive praise and feedback from participants in this year’s event. Below are some of the responses we received from our 2023 Bicycle Second Line follow-up form as well as more photos.

“I had a great time at the Bike Second Line! So well organized!”


“We had a great time. I enjoyed the route and the stop at Beanlandia where the kids could play on the playground and for us all to grab a popsicle. It was wonderful to bike around town through different neighborhoods with a large group. The kids enjoyed seeing so many people on bikes. Will definitely try and make it next year. Also, Second Line was a perfect starting and stopping place because of access to Greenway and then food and beer at the end. Thanks for a great event.”

“Always a beautiful ride…”

“We had a fantastic time and felt safe the whole time. The weather was great, and I got to talk to old friends and meet new friends. It makes you feel connected to cycle all over the city as a group and wave at people. Almost everyone was happy and excited to see a big group of bike riders. We will come to every group ride you host in the future.”

“I think Bike Easy staff were outstanding.”

“I really enjoyed the ride.”

Bike Easy was also excited to get constructive feedback on how the ride can be improved in the future. These responses will help us plan next year’s 2024 Bicycle Second Line to continue to be fun, safe, and easy for everyone.
