There is much to celebrate in New Orleans this year. French Quarter, New OrleansThe Big Easy is celebrating its tricentennial (that’s 300 years!) and they are partying as only they know how! However, it’s not just drinking, music, and great food that this beautiful and old city has to offer. You may not think of it as a cycling destination, but this city will surprise you with its cycling friendly landscape.

Last year named New Orleans one of the Top 50 cities in the United States to ride. With its lush greenery, numerous parks, historic neighbourhoods, and massive oak trees, there is much to see when riding in and around this Cajun capital on the Mississippi. Then, once off the bike, there’s plenty on the offer to refuel your spent calories.

Speaking of refueling spent calories, New Orleans is hosting one of North America’s largest food and wine festivals between May 23rd and the 27th. The New Orleans Wine & Food Experience will attract over 7000 food and wine lovers from across the country to experience creations by some of the best chefs in the nation.
