Ride to Remember

Bike Easy’s ‘Ride to Remember’ hosted by Metairie Cemetery

Join us for a community bicycle ride in honor of National Bicycle Safety Month at Metairie Cemetery on Sunday, May 19th at 8:00 am. Bike Easy and Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home & Cemeteries are partnering for this special, FREE family-friendly event to highlight bike safety and honor loved ones lost in fatal crashes while biking.  


We cordially invite friends and family of those lost in fatal crashes, as well as those who have survived them.  In addition to three staggered 3-mile community bike rides* at the ‘Ride to Remember’ event, Bike Easy will present bike safety information and demonstrations, and Metairie Cemetery will hold a brief memorial ceremony to honor the lives of people killed while riding their bikes. 

Metairie Cemetery is a safe, enclosed and beautiful space to ride a bicycle, and we invite you to join us for this special event. If you would like to ride in honor of a loved one lost in a cycling crash, at your request, we will include their name among those being honored during the memorial ceremony. 

Important: Participants riding their bikes to the event will enter through a designated bike entrance on Metairie Road. We will have a limited number of bikes available for those without bikes at the event, so please register soon to reserve a bike. There will be food and beverage vendors, as well as other local cycling organizations on site providing giveaways. 

If you are in need of a loaner bike for this event, please email [email protected] with the subject "Bike for A Ride to Remember" and include your height in the email. 

* Note: This is not a race. It is a series of leisurely-paced community bike rides.

We are able to offer this event at no cost thank you to the generous donations of our supporters including Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home and Cemeteries and Bike Law Louisiana.  If you would also like to contribute to this event and our advocacy efforts, click here.
