RideTHISbike Opens French Quarter Store

by Larry Lagarde

RideTHISbike will soon have a bike store in the New Orleans French Quarter!

After looking at locations for over a year, I am very excited to announce that RideTHISbike.com will soon have a store in the French Quarter. Located at 337 Burgundy St, the store is a few minutes' walk from Bourbon St (2 blocks), Canal St (3 blocks) and a quick streetcar or taxi ride from most New Orleans hotels, lodging accommodations and neighborhoods like the CBD, Warehouse District, Uptown, Mid City, etc.

Most of the folding bicycles currently on the folding bike page at RideTHISbike.com (as well as some other models) will be available at the store. Bikes will be offered for sale and for rent. Hotel delivery as well as helmets, water and bike locks will be available.

Why The French Quarter
The Quarter is the heart and soul of New Orleans. Designed for horses, buggies and walking, the Quarter's grid of narrow streets (where multi-story buildings stand shoulder to shoulder) is well suited for bicycling via folding bike. New Orleans is flat so a small folding bicycle with just a few gears is fine. Plus, Quarter residents, workers and visitors can fold their bike and take it with them inside where the bike's out of sight of vandals and thieves.

Hopefully, the sight of folding bikes zipping around the French Quarter will help more Americans recognize that bicycles are practical, sustainable and fun transportation.

By the way, if you're in New Orleans for a convention, cruise or something else that limits your time, a folding bike is a great way to quickly discover the city's main sights.
