Thumbnail image for NOLASocialRide.jpgNOLA Social Ride, born in 2010,  is an organization of like minded people…and by like minded we mean: “We Like Bikes.”  We own them, ride them, build them, decorate them, have fun on them, and live life on them.  This group is a place for all NOLA bike lovers, if you’re a slow cruiser or speed racer, we will have an event for you.  Our Thursday ride began as a monthly event in the fall of 2010, but have since grown into Happy Thursday and is now weekly and has been steadily growing since its inception.  The Wednesday Rabid Ride has been going steady since 2011, and has a dedicated following of mashers getting their training each week.  There are also other events that are being posted as well, and we hope to eventually have a ride for each day of the week!


The Happy Thursday Rides meet at different locations around NOLA, ride at a cruising pace, and end at a local wateringhole for a few beers.  We like to describe it as “Slow Miles with More Smiles”, and it’s our biggest party ride!

The Wednesday Rabid Ride meets at the New Orleans Museum of art each Wednesday at 6:30PM, and is a mad mash around City Park.  If you are looking to get fit, this is the ride for you!

There are also 2 new rides for 2013!  A Sunday Detox/Retox Ride, as well as an Early Bird Ride that can be on Saturday or Sunday (just check back, we post the times).  Both are medium-paced, so you don’t have to be on a fast bike or be in great shape to keep up!


NOLA Social Ride is always looking for more Ride leaders:

Are you a yoga instructor and interested in spreading the world of flexibility with bikers?  Are you a Speed Fanatic and want to lead a Mad Dash? Want to do a Poker Ride? Farmer’s Market Ride?  Kid-Friendly Rides? Have other ideas that you would love to turn into a fun social biking event?  We are always looking to people to organize weekly/monthly/one-off rides, and we are here to help make it happen.  We know that if we can get people on bikes, the city will become more bike friendly.  Interested?..consider Emailing Us.
