why we ride

NOLA to Angola is an annual three-day, 170-mile bicycle ride fundraiser. We ride from Orleans Parish Prison in New Orleans to Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary, biking each mile in solidarity with families who travel long distances to connect with their incarcerated loved ones.

who we ride with

We have raised funds to support operating costs for the Cornerstone Builders Bus Project, which connects families to their incarcerated loved ones, and housing vouchers for The First 72+, which provides re-entry services. In 2023, the ride will support Cornerstone, Daughters Beyond Incarceration, RISE, and REMILA.
