Wes McWhorter is the founder and creative director of Rouler, a cycling lifestyle brand based in New Orleans.
Ever since watching Andy Hampsten win the Giro d'Italia on the epic Gavia Pass, Wes has had a passion for the sport of cycling. Originally from Texas, he moved to New Orleans a year after Hurricane Katrina. He enjoys sharing his love of cycling and his adopted home with anyone and everyone.
I had a great ride with Wes out of his shop right in the heart of the French Quarter. Great thing is that there’s a café that serves awesome espresso and tasty local beer. I was surprised at how easy he made it to get out of the core. That being said I was glad to not have had to ride on my own!
A great experience. I can’t imagine trying to figure out a ride in New Orleans on my own. Wes and the Rouler Cafe staff were very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely do this again!
