Look around the streets of New Orleans these days, it’s impossible to miss signs of a greater number of people traversing the city on bicycles.

Some restaurants and bars are noticing too, and nowhere more than a part of Mid-City that’s becoming a crossroads of bike paths, a destination for in-town outings and, on nice days, a hub for people making the rounds by pedal power.

The focal point is the new Lafitte Greenway, a freshly-paved bike path and pedestrian park stretching from the edge of the French Quarter to the far corner of Mid-City. There’s been no official ribbon-cutting for the long-awaited project, and some finishing touches have yet to be installed, but people have been flocking to it nonetheless.
