    NOLA Road Bike Routes

    I'm going to a conference with my wife in a few weeks in New Orleans, and will be taking my road bike. I'm looking for a few decent 20-60 mile routes that start in or near the quarter, but Google keeps finding routes and companies that cater to tourists on cruisers and not roadies looking for a workout.

    Suggestions?

    Road routes in the NOLA area are almost non-existent. During the week I wouldn't consider it. We have some nice MUPs (with minimal foot traffic on the levees along Lake Pontchartrain and the river. The one on the river is under construction now, so it's out of the question. If you feel comfortable with the weekday traffic insanity, take Orleans Ave out of the Quarter to where it joins with Marconi. Marconi all the way North to Robert E Lee. Left on Robert E Lee and take it until you cross over the 17th St Canal at Lake Ave. At that point you can bounce up on the levee and ride along the lake for about 12 miles then return.
