bicycling_logo.jpgThe latest issue of Bicycling Magazine describes the best bike rides in every state.  We made the list!  This is how they described us;

“A tribe of fun-loving New Orleans cyclists meets every Thursday at a
rotating series of bars. They dress according to a rotating series of
themes (Big Mustache Ugly Sweater, superheroes, cartoon characters, The
Big Lebowski). They even have a motto: ‘Less Gears = More Cheers’.”

Click here to read the whole article.  We are not limited to Thursday rides, that has just been what we have always done since our inception almost 2 years ago.  We have been doing a good job in our short history, and we want to continue to grow larger & better.  If you have a comment about how we are operating or a suggestion email us at  We are a collective group where no one person is in charge; we welcome your opinion.

are our annual awards ceremony.  We found a great way to recognize the passion we all share for getting
together, riding bicycles, & having fun all over this great city!  We will come together on April 5th at Squeal Bar-B-Q at 7pm.  We
plan on socializing, some dinner will be provided, and drinks will be
available.  We’ll have a small ceremony where we’ll distribute our
awards, and then go for a short cruise!
is a great chance to meet cruisers from other parts of town i
f you only ride when HAPPY THURSDAY comes to your part of town.  So
come on out even if you don’t plan on riding as we will be hanging out
for a couple hours.  If you have never been on a ride, you are invited
as well.  Come see what we are all about!

There will be a limited amount of free food & drinks.

are holding a raffle to support the Cruzy Awards!  Raffle tickets are $2,

many as you want!  Some of the items feature NOLA Social Ride T-shirts,
Coffee Mugs, Stickers, and Totes.  Please buy raffle tickets by

For January 2012, send us photos of your bike, scenes of New Orleans
from your bike, photos of your group rides — basically your best
representation of “NOLA from your bike.” We’ll be taking submissions
until midnight on Monday, Jan. 31.

Upload your photos to the user gallery January 2012 Photo Contest: NOLA from your bike
and don’t forget the captions! After that, photo editors from The
Times-Picayune will choose the best 10, and you will vote on the winner,
who will receive an 8″ x 12″ glossy print of his or her photo…”
