Poisoned Ground


Systemic racism pervades the very air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we inhabit. We’ve created two separate rides that explore the theme, and the damage that environmental racism causes. One ride is within the city of New Orleans; the other travels upriver and explores the fence-line communities of Cancer Alley.

While you are riding, bring masks and hand sanitizer, respect physical distancing, and make sure that you have an emergency contact who knows where you are and can pick you up if needed. We also have some more in-depth tips for safe biking in the pandemic, check them out! Please be aware that NOLA to Angola cannot provide logistical or emergency support to individual riders this year. Take care, and safe riding!
