Family Bike Ride Tours the New Algiers Bikeways

This Sunday evening we were lucky to have a perfect break in the rain for the Algiers Family Bike Ride!

We started off in Berhman Park with a bike light giveaway and some informative bike safety resources, then took off down thew new Lawrence Street bike boulevard.  We rode the new bikeways on Wall Blvd.,  MacArthur, Odeon, as well as the freshly paved levee path and more.  We had a lot of fun, some great dialogue and a lot of gratitude for the city for making streets built to share a priority!

Check out some photos below and stay tuned for another Algiers family ride this summer!



Full Faith Gospel Church Bike, Walk, and Run Event May 22

On Behalf of Faith Full Gospel Baptist Church, Pastor Christopher Sylvain and First Lady Elder Cynthia Sylvain, I would like to thank New Orleans Complete Streets/Bike Easy for selecting us as a recipient of a Complete Streets Activation Mini-Grant. We were so excited to host our 1st walk, run, bike event Saturday May 22, 2021 to help bring awareness to the efforts that have been made and the continued need to make the streets of New Orleans safe for all in whatever mode of transportation one chooses by accessing safe designated pathways. We were able to keep all of our event participants safe by utilizing the current pathways that are in place, while recognizing the need that there’s more work to be done. Overall we all had a great time and a lot of fun, hats off to Laura Harris and Merrick Brown for their  excellent presentations, that helped us gain greater knowledge of where and how we can get around safely for work or play in the streets of New Orleans. Faith stands in full support of New Orleans Complete Streets/Bike easy.
