Journey’s End at “The Big Easy”

Day 32– 38.8miles – Slidell, LA to New Orleans, LA – 3hrs 16mins in the saddle– Sunny & Windy

It was a bitter sweet feeling rolling into New Orleans. Excited beyond words that we had biked over 1,000 miles to reach our destination and simultaneously coming to the sobering realization that this is the last day of being self sufficient on two wheels. We playfully hoped that we would hit it big at the casino so that we could keep riding.

Here are some quick stats from our trip:

  • 1,168 Miles
  • 98 Hours on the saddle
  • 32 Days on the road
  • 6 States
  • 2 Flat Tires (Andy & Ollie)
  • 1 Jar of Peanut Butter
  • 0 Accidents or Injuries

My parents (and their dog Barney) drove all the way down from Charlotte to hang out with us in New Orleans and to drive us back. I feel very fortunate to have such supportive parents! We are driving back to Charlotte tomorrow. More photos and videos to come when we get home, but for now The Big Easy is calling!

Peace & Love,
Heather, Andy & Ollie
