Got a bike? Of course you do, right? Then why not celebrate Earth Day by learning about some of New Orleans’ important environmental landmarks while getting some much-needed exercise? The tour starts at 9 a.m. Sunday, April 17, at the parking lot of Bayou Bicycles next to the New Orleans Earth Day Festival grounds. Join members of Crescent City Cyclists and visit the sites of the future Lafitte Greenway and riverfront park, community gardens, neighborhoods impacted by environmental issues and more.
The ride should last about three hours, with a stop at Global Green’s Holy Cross Project for snacks and drinks. Click the photo above for a larger view of the route.
