Cyclists, rejoice: Bike Easy's annual Bike to Work Day is scheduled for Wednesday, April 11.
Now part of a monthlong cycling challenge
hosted by the cycling advocacy organization, Bike to Work Day is designed to encourage bike commuting from different neighborhoods throughout the city. On that morning, bike trains depart from sites in Algiers, Uptown, Gentilly, Bywater, Mid-City, Broadmoor and Metairie at 7:15 a.m. for a meetup in Duncan Plaza from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. (A list of bike train departure points is here
; you also can arrive at the meetup on your own schedule.)
Free coffee, breakfast food and bike tune-ups will be available at Duncan Plaza.
Ahead of Bike to Work Day, there's also a free workshop where you can learn to adjust your brakes at Dashing Bicycles (1234 N. Broad St.) on Monday, April 9.
