Bike Easy is excited to be partnering with Prospect.3 New Orleans to present P.3 Rides – an opportunity for visitors and locals to experience P.3 by bicycle! With so many exhibitions and events taking place concurrently, P.3 Rides will simplify the process of engaging in P.3’s offerings.

Our tour will take you to P.3 venue highlights throughout the Faubourgs, New Orleans’ historic neighborhoods, and will include background information on the Prospect.3: Notes for Now biennial.

Tours last 4-5 hours, with the majority of the time spent viewing venues. We will also provide a stop for lunch at a local eatery.
