WHEN/WHERE: Tuesday, April 8, 2014
            Scheduled NOLA Bike to Work Day events include the following:
 
7:00 – 7:30 AM: Meet up at Bike Convoy(s) Neighborhood Ride Meetups
Those who work in the CBD can join experienced riders at strategically placed Neighborhood Ride Meetups throughout Orleans Parish to ride together downtown.

WHY: NOLA Bike to Work Day raises awareness about the benefits of biking and regional developments that are making biking easier and safer for all.
Before Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans had approximately 11 miles of bicycle paths. Thanks to a grant from Entergy Corporation and a partnership between the City of New Orleans and the Louisiana Public Health Institute, the city now boasts over 82 with more planned or under construction.
For its efforts, the City of New Orleans has been designated a Bronze Level Bike Friendly City by the League of American Bicyclists — joining other cities such as Portland, Boulder and Austin who are designated bike-friendly cities. In 2012, the Alliance for Bicycling and Walking Benchmarking Report ranked New Orleans tenth nationwide for the highest number of workers commuting by bike.
