I recently spent two weeks in New Orleans for the annual Jazz Festival. In anticipation of the trip I asked a friend who lives there to give me some tips on the best places to rent a bike. He suggested we look on Craig's list thinking we might get one cheaper than renting for 2 weeks. He was right, we landed an older Huffy 18 spd. for just $70.00.Left it in his garage to be used when I go back or for others to use.
The bike was great for the daily 10 to 15 miles we were riding. I much enjoyed the flat, wide boulevards. Used the bike to bike into the Quarter a couple of times and several trips through City Park and along Bayou St. John. A delightful couple of weeks of easy biking, good food and music with friends. Craig's ist definitely was the way to go.
