    Move to New Orleans

    I am to that point in life I am thing about retirement. I want to move south first and work a few years before I retire and kinda settle in before I retire. New Orleans is one area I am seriously looking at. I know I can transfer my employment without difficulty. Does anyone who lives there have any opinions? For example, how is bicycling in that town? Is crime in the city completely outrageous? And anything else you might like to tell someone thinking of moving to NO. Thanks.

    You eat to overcome to humidity (which means lots). Plus lots of great food in the town anyway.

    But I only visit, I've never lived there.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    I hear the humidity is a killer. Worst than where I live -- Florida. But it isn't too bad in my area. Hot but bearable. No crime, 46 mile paved bike trail, and a 41 mile paved bike trail a short drive from here.
