Our History

Who We Are

​bikes by:  Light Em Up!

Nola City Lights is New Orleans premier night life scenic excursion of the French Quarter, on bikes that light up. Nola City Lights started as a way to control my weight gain. I hated walking and running was out of the question. I have always had a love for bikes. After Katrina I moved back to New Orleans aka Nola to be closer to family and friends.

I was introduced to the local social riding clubs. This is a huge underground network of people who love to ride,and enjoy life, and the city we live in and love so much. Some members of these clubs ride every night.

My favorite ride is the Happy Thursday ride, Well, one day I had a friend in town so I invited them to come on the ride, I had an extra bike and I knew my friend was health conscious, so the idea wasn't hard to get them on board. We road the Thursday ride. Everyone had lights on there bike, we made a few stops at local bars some offered live music and some offered free food. My friend was blown away with excitement!. He had never experienced anything like that. It was then I realized, why not share this with other visitors who want a unique New Orleans  experience. Nola City Lights was born,
