Buying a used bike...

by pegashero

One review suggested buying a used bike and using that to get around in NO instead of a more costly rental. Where would you find a used bike for sale and could we count on finding one? The rental agencies suggest renting ASAP to ensure a bike when you are there.
Any suggestions?

Re: Buying a used bike...

by RoscoeGregg

I was a pro bike mechanic for 10 years. So my advice is check pawn shops. In my experience the bikes people purchased at pawn shops were often still in good condition. The prices were often as good as at a thrift store.

If you do not know how to judge the condition of a used bike I have two bits of advice. Find a good bike mechanic and have them teach you how to look for a well maintained bike. If you are not bicycle literate and do not have the time for even a crash course bite the bullet and rent. Then the mechanicals are the rental shops problem. It would be a shame to spend your whole trip fixing a crappy bike.

It will take most of at least 1 day to find and buy a bike so factor that in. I am impressed with your verve and wish you the best

Happy Trails

I would definitely also check Craigslist if looking for a used bike.

You can go to Walmart (there is one near the Garden District) and buy a cheap bike for about $80 or less.

its located at 1901 Tchoupitoulas Street

At the end of your trip you can donate it or sell it to a pawn shop for a few bucks.

Travel Tips for New Orleans

New Orleans school of cooking

by L-A

The food! You can take the cooking school and learn from Big Kevin Belton. I learned how to make cornbread, red beans and rice, pecan pralines (New Orleans version) and pecan pie. Mmmm! Its a toss up - music in French Quarter and the food. First time I was there I went as an artist. The second time it was for the music but took the cooking school. My husband and I stayed in a timeshare so I could try out cooking Louisiana style.

I also took a bus trip to my favourite clothes store in Kenner, and this lady on the bus complained the whole time about some bad food "all rice, no bean" over and over. It was funny but I felt sorry for her.

Walk around! The French...

by Katirose

Walk around! The French Quarter is full of gallerys, shops, street performers and bars. Then walk to the river bank and look at the Mississippi and the boats upon it. The Garden District is not to far and then admire the beautiful, old houses. Be sure to notice the unique iron work in the balconies that are all over the city.
Be sure to walk down Bourbon Street. My impression was that it was going to be a seedy area. While filled with strip clubs and many bars, there is an intersting mix of people and police. The kindness of the residents made for a wonderful trip.

When in the 'Big Easy' you...

by ladyfisher

When in the 'Big Easy' you must go to the french quater. while there have a hurrican at Pat O'Brians. Explore every street and shop during the day , leave eat dinner and return at night . It will be a whole other world! To get a taste of bourbon st. go to htt://www.nolaive.com/bourbocam/classic/ It has a live viedo feed of several place's in N.O. with live radio and really neat cams. The people are so friendly! no matter where you go there is music coming out of somewhere and the food is out of this world! We ate at Pat O'brians and the oyster bar .You havn't eaten cajan until you suck a head off a crawfish in N.O. !Someone will surly give you lesson on how to do it.

Mardi Gra in the French Quarter

by Kodi01

Mardi Gra! I have never been to a party like this one before. It consists of parades and balls and festive costumes. Drinking a 'hurricane' and not remembering what happened next.........it is a very potent drink.
