Bike to the Books

New Orleans has always been a good place to ride a bike, and not just because there isn’t a hill in sight. But, recently, biking in New Orleans has become safer thanks in part to the City’s bicycle network of more than 120 miles of shared-use pathways, protected bike lanes, and traditional bikeways. In addition to the increased bikeways, the City has begun the installation of 485 new bike racks throughout New Orleans. As bicycle ridership continues to grow, the Library is actively developing ways to support bike culture through its own initiatives and through a growing partnership with Bike Easy, a local bicycle education and advocacy organization.
