When & Where
Crescent City Cyclists
Crescent City Cyclists is the longest continuously running bicycle touring club in the greater New Orleans area. We host leader-led rides nearly every weekend, on both the north and south shores of Lake Pontchartrain. City rides are at a more causal pace and shorter distance than the country rides, which appeal to the “roadies” among us.
