Me oh my oh, but we love Bayou Boogaloo. Yall ever been? Basically shrink Jazzfest, remove the out-of-towners, add the outdoor atmosphere of the Fly, but maintain the made-in-the Mid-City mentality, and then toss your wallet in the air cuz its free, letting anyone and everyone toss back beer and New Orleans best food as Bayou breezes keep the party cool while local musicians drop it like its hot.
This is a true story.
What more do you need to know? Well for starters, how to get there. Our recommendation? The Bicycle Second Line. Not a practiced pedaler? No worries. Like your favorite costume closet tutu, this 11 mile route is one size fits all: Youll cruise at an easy 7-10mph pace, with rest stops at Rouses and the Back Street Cultural Museum.
Oh, and did we mention the Bone Tone Brass Band will ride you there with blood-pumping, brass-beating bike-escorting tunes? Bicycle Second Line is organized by Bike Easy, whose mission is simple: make biking in New Orleans easy, safe, and fun.
Bicycle Second Line
Best part of riding the Second Line? When you get where youre going, youll have dozens of new friends with whom to fest the day away.
Why try bike? Just ask anyone whos ever had the satisfaction of breezing by stalled cars in the Quarter or at Mardi Gras…
