Spring Bicycle Second Line To Celebrate Bike Easy’s 15th Anniversary
NEW ORLEANS, LA — Bike Easy turns 15 this year! To celebrate 15 years of making bicycling easy, safe, and fun for everyone in Greater New Orleans, all are invited to roll with Bike Easy, Egg Yolk Jubilee Music Band, and hundreds of cyclists on Sunday, May 20 at the annual Spring Bicycle Second Line. This pedal-powered version of the famous, musical second line parades through the streets of New Orleans and ends with a celebration at Second Line Brewing. All you need is a bike!
To make this year special, Bike Easy is encouraging riders to pick a costume theme and come with a group dressed to impressed.
