Biketastic Fundraiser

white back ground_zpsnxeoceggI need some help covering the costs of the July 9 event at Castillo Blanco Art Studios, The Bicycle: 150 Years of History and Art. To that end, I’ve set up a Go Fund Me campaign.

I know what you are thinking: why don’t I just give my money directly to Bike Easy? Well, you could do that, but this way you help fund Bike Easy and get a really fun educational event.

A mobile app enhanced historical ride that follows the formation of the original New Orleans Bicycle Club in 1881 to the site of the Audubon Driving Park, New Orleans’ first venue for bicycle racing. We’ll also pass by the clubhouse of the Louisiana Cycling Club, built specially for the club in 1890.

Through the mobile app, downloadable at neworleanshistorical.org, participants will be able to view historical images related to each site.

This is a one-time, free event open to the public.

We will assemble at Cafe Rouler and visit two historical sites in the CBD before riding up St. Charles Avenue (or a less conjested parallel street) to Audubon Park.

Opening of Rouler in New Orleans

I’m very pleased to be working with Rouler to launch Bike-Tastic New Orleans Summer 2016.

Wes McWhorter, proprietor of Rouler, a new cycle shop, cafe, and meet-up spot for the New Orleans cycling community and everyone else, too.

The kick-off event will be at their grand opening on May 26. And then I’ll be working there every weekend, serving up refreshments and a NOLA Cycle History Tale of the Week to whomever wants to hear it. It’s a really great space and I hope you will all swing by and check it out this summer.
