Bikeeasy's Playstreets Ciclovia
Long before cars arrived on the roads of New Orleans, our streets were places to meet and come together. Communities grew up around thoroughfares. They were easy streets to enjoy. We just think it’s time to reclaim the streets, just once in a while, to bring neighbors together. Let’s make the streets of New Orleans the place to be, not something to travel over at high speeds. It’s a project designed to bring the community together, walk and talk, get moving and feel good — all free of cars and exhaust. Contact Claire Beauchamp at for more information! Grab your bike and meet outside Reily for this event at 7:30AM on Saturday 10/26.
