Our friends at Confederacy of Cruisers felt there there was no tour that properly showcased the Creole neighborhoods of New Orleans, and their tour was born. Here at Rebirth, we felt the same about the other tours that visit the Lower Ninth Ward, and wanted to offer a closer experience.
Life experienced through a windshield is one step away from watching it on TV, but even a bicycle tour can become just a series of sights. We want to deliver a series of stories and lives, from the history and importance of the Lower Nine, the context of the flooding during Hurricane Katrina, and why the rebirth of this remarkable neighborhood matters. Come see this rebirth in progress, and understand the hurdles that have yet to be overcome. Our tours will tell you the stories of the residents who can’t think of leaving and those who are helping them return.
