New Orleans, La.- Super Bowl week brings the potential for super-sized traffic headaches in the French Quarter and downtown. A bicycle might be the perfect alternative, even if you don't own one.
Entergy and Bike Easy will offer bikes you can borrow for free, and the NFL Experience will have free bike valet parking.
The Bike Share program opens Wednesday with kiosks located at the Canal Street and Julia Street entrances of the Riverwalk.
Bike riders can find the free secure valet parking by entering through Spanish Plaza and following the signs down the wharf to the indoor Riverwalk Marketplace GAP facility.
The Super Bowl Bike Share is designed to demonstrate the potential for a permanent program in New Orleans.
According to Bike Easy, similar bike shares are already in operation in 25 U.S. cities and more than a hundred cities in Europe.
