New Orleans

Bike Tours:

For a city of less than 400,000 (but over 9 million annual visitors!), New Orleans certainly has its share of bike tour companies:

Urban Routes:

lafitte_gwayCheck out the recently completed Lafitte Greenway and ride north from the French Quarter through the Treme neighborhood and nearly to City Park.  The trail passes near spots to grab a bite and currently ends just a couple of blocks from tasty brews at Second Line Brewing.

 

 

Bike Rental:

  • A Bicycle Named Desire is a spin-off from Confederacy of Cruisers and located in the same buildings as the tours and their new retail shop, I.J.Reillys.  They rent cruiser bikes similar to those used on the bike tours and are full of advice about seeing the real New Orleans.
