Something Borrowed, Something Blue
How best to navigate around New Orleans and squeeze in a little exercise at the same time? On one of the 700-plus
Blue Bikes that recently hit the streets. The city’s new municipal bicycle-sharing program, in partnership with Blue Cross/ Blue Shield of Louisiana (hence their color), offers an easy alternative to Uber with dozens of rental/drop-off stations stretching from the French Quarter to City Park and between the Bywater and Garden District neighborhoods. Riders register on the Blue Bikes website or app, where they receive account and pin numbers needed to unlock the bikes, which rent for $8 an hour and can be dropped off at any rack station citywide. For additional information and a map of locations, visit bluebikesnola.com … and get rolling.
