Bike through the little seen parts of New Orleans with us and take a ride through the rebirth of a historical neighborhood. See not only the damage from Hurrican Katrina, but the uplifting rebuilding; and more importantly, why the neighborhood needed to survive. We'll visit the levee, learn about the musical culture, and meet Ronald Lewis, local historian and curator of the House of Dance and Feathers. Definitely an unforgettable day.

A must do especially for those who want to get the Louisiana experience outside of all the tourist attractions. The lower 9th Ward was eye opening. So glad I did this tour.

Our bike tour of the Ninth Ward was one of the most educational experiences we have had in NOLA, after several trips and tours. The ride was comfortable, but the bikes were definitely an older model, with baskets mounted on the front. The cost of...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

On their website (can't link here), it's still $60 plus a donation at the House of Dance and Feathers and lunch and tip if you choose. They say it's an intermediate ride. You cover a lot of ground but over a lot of time. So... More

Shoot, I don't remember the price, but the ride was easy (no hills that I recall). We had to navigate thru a little traffic but it wasn't a big deal and we all stuck together.
