  • 17th Street Canal Breach 6932 Bellaire Dr New Orleans, LA, 70124 United States (map)

This bike tour will begin at the City Park Boat and Bike Rentals at Big Lake Trail. Taking safe, marked biking routes, we will bike to the 17th Street Canal breach (6932 Bellaire Drive) and hear a short history of the breach disaster.  Then we will bike through the Lakeview neighborhood, through beautiful City Park to the London Avenue Canal breach (5300 Warrington Drive) in the Filmore Gardens neighborhood of Gentilly.  Again, we will hear a short history of the breach disaster.  We will then return to City Park.  The bike tour is 12 miles and takes about 90 minutes including the levee breach talks.

There is no charge to attend the bike tour. However if you do not own a bike and would still like to participate, you may rent a bike from JoyRide bike rentals. The cost to rent a bike for the day is $30.  If you would like to reserve a bike for this event, please email Alberto at
