Free Bike Valet and Bike Share at the NFL Experience

It's almost time for Super Gras - our favorite match up of football and Mardi Gras fans streaming into town! Avoid the traffic jam downtown and choose the convenient and fun option to get to all the best events during the big week by riding a bicycle!

Bike Easy will be set and ready to park thousands of bikes for all the festivities downtown at our Indoor Bike Valet Secure Parking Station at Spanish Plaza - it's absolutely safe, secure, and free!

Don't have a bike, but want a fast and cheap way to explore the NFL Experience activities? Entergy, the Downtown Development District, and Bike Easy are bringing B-Cycle to New Orleans so residents can try out for the first time a bicycle share free rental system for the whole week of NFL Experience. Come down to one of the Bicycle Share Kiosks at the Convention Center, check out a B-Cycle bike, and ride through the NFL experience activities for free!

Details:
Wed, Jan 30 - Sun, Feb 3

Free Bike Share Kiosks
Station 1: Spanish Plaza, Canal Street @ The Riverwalk
Station 2: Convention Center Blvd @ Julia Street
Open Daily from 10am - 6pm

Free Bike Valet Secure Bike Parking

What is Bicycle Share?
Bike Share is a network of bicycles and automated kiosks that allow users to make short trips (1 to 3 miles) quickly, conveniently and affordably. A small bicycle share system would have a profound impact on improving New Orleans' transportation network, and for those people who don't own bikes, it's a great way to get to your destination points in a healthy, comfortable and convenient manner.

What is Bike Valet?
Like coat-check, but for bikes! Bike Easy's Bike Valet Program has been seen all over New Orleans at festivals and events. Come ride to the NFL Experience and leave your bike safe and secure with us. It's the hassle-free and easy way for event-goers to come festivals, makes you feel like a VIP just for riding to the event, and it's absolutely free!
