Ride Details

The 2013 WNBR NOLA will take place on June 8, 2013.

The ride starts and ends at Mickey Markey Park. The ride takes us through the French Quarter, past Jackson Square, and then up Bourbon Street.

Riders should assemble at the park starting at 4:00 PM for body painting, other preparations, and other events. We will have to line up in the staging area (in the street) promptly at 5:00 PM. Everyone who is going to ride must be behind the lead police car and start on time. All human powered vehicles are welcome. Bikes, skates, skateboards, etc.

Only riders are allowed in the assembly area. Like any other parade, friends, family, spectators, photographers and videographers should line the route. There are several good viewing sites along Decatur and Bourbon Streets. Spectators have the opportunity to witness the ride twice by catching it on Decatur and then walking three blocks to Bourbon Street and catching it again. For photographers, Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve on Decatur provides an excellent opportunity with scenic Jackson Square and historic St. Louis Cathedral as a backdrop.

Future

People interested in participating in WNBR New Orleans should join the discussion group, try to make contact with others with similar views, and demonstrate some initiative. It will happen if you help make it happen! Please refer to the Organizing a ride page for more information about starting or restarting a ride.
