The New Orleans Neighborhood Tour is an easy-to-moderate ride. You will cover 10 -11 miles on tour. Like all bicycle tours, it is recommended for proficient bike riders.
If the supplier suspects anyone is under the influence of alcohol, he or she will not be permitted to ride.
Unfortunately, pregnant women are not allowed to participate.
At this time, the suppliers are unable to accommodate children who require child's bikes and infants. Any child that participates on tour must be able to ride a standard, adult size bike.
