Look around the streets of New Orleans these days and it's impossible to miss that more people are 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 running from the edge of the French Quarter to the corner of Mid-City. It's built over a one time industrial corridor and much of it still passes open lots, the back of warehouses and rows of small homes.
