Explore New Orleans Via Bicycle Riding a bicycle is an extremely popular and efficient method to navigate throughout New Orleans and the French Quarter. Fortunately, visitors can get around just like the locals due to bicycle rental companies, like American Bicycle Rental Company (ABRC). In addition, Free Wheelin' Bike Tours provides an affordable and fun alternative to walking and bus tours. New Orleans is a unique destination for bicyclists because it is compact and flat as a crepe! We live in the biggest little city in America. From the seat of a bike, New Orleans is transformed into a Wonderland of Exploration... you can be a kid again. The city reveals her often overlooked nooks, crannies and secret spots that just aren't accessible by any other mode of transport. On a bike, you can see and do more in less time... with a song in your heart and a smile on your face. According to Wikipedia, New Orleans ranks as #20 in the U.S. in regards to bicycle commuters. In the Fall of 2011, The League of American Bicyclists bestowed unto New Orleans it's Bronze "Bicycle Friendly Community" award. Since Katrina, New Orleans has quadrupled it's miles of bikeways. We believe with a motivated and engaged citizen/government partnership, New Orleans could be the #1 bicycle friendly city in the country in no time flat. American Bicycle Rental Company (ABRC) located at 325 Burgundy Street, opened their doors in February of 2011. ABRC was also the 1st bicycle rental company to open in the French Quarter post-Katrina. The American Bicycle Rental Company is the premier bicycle rental company in New Orleans. They offer high-quality, custom designed, American-made cruisers set-up especially for the rough streets of New Orleans. Included with each rental is a lock, helmet, basket and a map with riding routes. Another key feature that sets them apart from the competition is that they have the only after-hours returns facility in the city. Free Wheelin' Bike Tours (FWBT) at 325 Burgundy Street, opened their doors in January of 2012. FWBT was also the 1st bike tour company to open in the French Quarter postKatrina. Free Wheelin' Bike Tours specializes in bicycle tours that center on the history of New Orleans from its founding in 1718 to present day. Ride by stately manors, and through historic neighborhoods nestled beneath ancient Oak trees. While the buildings have come and gone, the people and culture have remained, and we are proud of the fact that some things never change. Come with us for a ride through old New Orleans and Let The Good Times Roll!

While appropriate for families, live entertainment on some evenings draws groups of friends to gather at Rita’s Tequila House after the traditional dinner hour to enjoy the food, drinks and great company.

Four-State Run for the Lighthouse PENSACOLA, FLA (April 15, 2012) – Long distance runner George Melichar will be running from the French Quarter in New Orleans to the Pensacola Lighthouse this July to raise money for the restoration of the Pensacola Lighthouse. Billed as the 'Krewe du Shoe' Run, Melichar will be running an average of 60 miles per day to cover the total distance of over 230 miles in 4 days on July 24-27. In addition to raising money for the restoration of the Pensacola Lighthouse, George’s run will honor the children attending the Salvation Center School in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This run is also under consideration for a Guinness World Record attempt by George Melichar. "My passion for running in New Orleans has lead me to serve my community by aiding in recovery." says Melichar, "As I have traveled the world running marathons, I have come to appreciate the city landmarks, the neighborhoods I run through, and the residents’ enthusiasm as I run pass." According to Melichar his goal is to raise $800,000 needed to repoint or restore the weathered masonry in this historical lighthouse tower to ensure it is around for future generations. "I also hope that by helping to preserve this historical landmark with my four-state run I will also generate attention to the beauty and tourism opportunities available to Gulf Coast visitors." In addition to donations, the Pensacola Lighthouse is looking for volunteers to help support Melichar as he makes this historic run from New Orleans, through Gulfport, Biloxi, Pascagoula, Mobile, Baldwin County and on to the Pensacola Lighthouse. You can donate at: http://www.crowdrise.com/ KreweduShoe2012/fundraiser/georgemelichar You can donate or volunteer at: www.pensacolalighthouse.org
