This year we helped transform New Orleans’ bike infrastructure. Almost exactly one year ago, Mayor Cantrell painted some of the Moving New Orleans Bikes initiative’s first protected and low-stress bikeways. Today, 10 miles of protected bikeways have been built in Algiers, Elysian Fields Avenue and surrounding streets have protected bikeways, and 50 more miles are planned for construction this year.
We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but we also know that we would not have been able to spend time and resources advocating for this critical bike safety infrastructure without the support of Bike Easy Members.
This May, we’re celebrating this milestone, and the many other accomplishments Bike Easy Members supported, by launching our Membership Month campaign, #JoinUp! We’ll be kicking off this year’s Membership Month on May 4th, GiveNOLA Day. So, mark your calendar and save the date!
During our #JoinUp! campaign, we’ll celebrate Bike Easy’s community of dedicated members and showcase how membership helps us turn our vision of making biking safe, easy, and fun for everyone in Greater New Orleans, into a reality.
