Creole Odyssey Bicycle Tour

Embarking from the historic core of the city, the Creole Odyssey traces the city’s expansion into its surrounding bayous.

Enjoy an extended ride under the shade of regal Live Oak trees as we journey down the opulent Esplanade Ridge. After visiting St. Louis Cemetery #3, you will cruise past swampy vistas in City Park, our largest public park. You’ll traverse Bayou St. John, a historic waterway that was used by Native Americans and French settlers alike, and learn why it was so instrumental in our city’s founding.

What to expect:

Explore New Orleans the fun and eco-friendly way on a small-group bike tour that winds through the Big Easy’s oldest and most distinctive neighborhoods. Cycle along a flat and leisurely route from the famous French Quarter to less-visited neighborhoods like Esplanade Ridge, City Park, and Bayou St. John, learning about the city’s rich history and modern culture along the way.

Pick up your bike and meet your guide at our shop in the French Quarter (626 North Rampart St), and begin with a ride through this storied neighborhood.
