Bike commuting to LSUHSC

Are you one of the 9 percent of folks who bike or walk to work in New Orleans? New Orleans is ranked 8th in the country for bicycle commuters. Here’s some tips for LSUHSC pedal pushers.

  • Bicycle, scooter and motorcycle parking in the Roman Street Garage is located on the first floor at the corner of Tulane Avenue and S. Roman Street. There is also bike parking in front of the Medical Education Building.
  • A cool shower or at least a towel off is always nice after a ride. The LSUHSC Wellness Center has showers and changing rooms available for faculty, staff and students.
  • Looking for a [relatively] safe and [somewhat] smooth bike route? is a website that helps cyclists share knowledge of good bicycle routes. Here’s a good one from the Bywater to CBD and another from Uptown to the Medical District.
  • It doesn’t hurt to stay stylish while you ride. Although there is no helmet law in Louisiana, there are multiple bike stores where you can find a nice one in town. A good strong lock is also a must! Bike locking tips.
  • Community biking groups are growing around town. NolaCycle and Bike Easy are two that offer group rides and other activities. And don’t forget the Louisiana Bike Festival, every June in Abita Springs.

Happy biking!
