Road Cycling New Orleans
Anybody familiar with the Mississippi Bike Trail? When we spend time in New Orleans we want to road bike. Thanks
Hello Shona - Are you referring to what Adventure Cycling Association ("ACA) includes as a part of their Great Rivers South Trail

If yes :- ), then that Section 3 Map will provide you with an immensely rich set of information. You will note from the above website that you do not have to be a member to purchase the ACA Maps.
Thank you for this information. This is very helpful but I'm not certain it is the trail that somebody mentioned to me. I was told there is a trail that you can hop on in New Orleans and go for miles.

Meanwhile, I would not be surprised if the official/original Mississippi Bike Path did not and still does go all the way to N.O. but the ACA just did not include it.
slow as I ever was
A quick web search brought up a path, looks like from Audubon Park to Destrehan along the river on the levees - aka the "Levee Top Trail". LINK1. LINK2
I've never taken my bike to New Orleans, just my stomach.
