What is Bicycle
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!
