Please join us as we TAKE A HIKE along the Lafitte Greenway on Saturday, April 14, 2012.
Saturday April 14
9:30 AM: Bike Easy will hold a bicycle safety workshop in the Delgado Community College parking lot. Bike Easy will also offer FREE bike valet services for all participants of the hike. Register here!
10 AM: Meet at the Delgado Community College in the parking lot (parking and bike valet available).
1 PM: Finish at Congo Square in Armstrong Park with a culminating celebration featuring Baby Boys Brass Band, refreshments and more.
(These times are tentative, as we'll be hiking in small groups with plenty of fun activities along the way. Different groups will probably move at different speeds.)
The Hike is FREE and open to the public. Please register in advance to help us gauge how many participants to expect. The more the merrier! Choose the FREE ticket, FOLC Membership, or be a FOLC Hero giving the donation of your choice. Each level also gives the option to select whether you will need the Bike Valet service made available by Bike Easy. Bike Valet is FREE and open to the public. This will help us prepare for the turnout, as well!
The annual hike is roughly 3 miles, and parts of the path are overgrown and weedy. So dress accordingly, and you might want to bring some sunscreen. Flip-flops are not appropriate footwear!
Friends of Lafitte Corridor (FOLC) is a grassroots organization, organized in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans to give special priority in rethinking the New Orleans landscape. The organization was granted 501(c)3 status by the IRS beginning January 1st, 2008. FOLC's mission seeks to preserve and revitalize the Lafitte Corridor and adjacent neighborhoods from the French Quarter to Canal Boulevard by advocating for and facilitating the creation of a greenway that encourages active living and economic development and links neighborhoods, cultural features, historic sites, retail areas and public spaces.
