Over 100 participants gathered on Saturday morning, April 14th to Hike the Lafitte Corridor. Bike Easy provided bike valet services free of charge and hosted a Bicycle Safety Workshop before the Hike. The weather was beautiful and FOLC Ambassadors were ready to lead their groups through the 3-mile journey headed towards downtown New Orleans. The event ended in Congo Square where hikers were welcomed by Baby Boys Brass Band, fruit and refreshments.
