New Orleans, Louisiana: Levee Breach Bike Tour

  • City Park 1 Palm Drive New Orleans, LA, 70124 United States (map)

The bike tour starts at City Park. On safe biking routes, cyclists start by riding along scenic Bayou St. John to the Levee Exhibit Hall and Garden at the east breach of the London Avenue Canal. The next site is a pump station and then a ride along scenic Lake Pontchartrain to the 17th Street Canal breach in the Lakeview neighborhood. Cyclists can view the breach sites and also the neighborhoods affected by the failure of levees designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Finally, everyone will bike back through City Park. The bike tour is 12 miles. You must bring your own bike. The Levee Breach Bike Tour is a healthy way to learn more about the worst civil engineering disaster in the history of the United States.
