Entergy Bike the Big Easy offers a casual, social and cultural ride for cyclists on either a 20-mile and 40-mile route through some of the most historic neighborhoods in the city while riding on CLOSED roads. The event will start on Poydras Street near the Mercedes Benz Superdome and finish near the same location with a post event party for cyclist of all ages.
Entergy Bike the Big Easy will offer riders of many ability levels the opportunity to see the city on two wheels like never before. Most importantly all cyclists in the Entergy Bike the Big Easy will have to adhere to the very strict speed limits placed on the event by event management and members of the New Orleans Police Department.
Riders will not be allowed to ride faster than 18 mph throughout the city route while slower riders must maintain at least a 6 mph to ensure that roads will be reopened in a timely manner.
Each year a portion of the proceeds from this ride will benefit Entergy’s The Power To Care!
