THE RING AROUND THE LAKE
The dream of a Ring Around the Lake (Pontchartrain) bike trail has been around for quite some time. A thorough study was completed for the Greater New Orleans Regional Planning Commission in 1997 (see attached) to create a blueprint for how to get this done. Obviously, creating the Manchac Greenway up the west side of the lake goes hand-in-hand with this project and we are proud to do our part.
Since the current popularity of bicycle riding for health, the environment and economics has never been greater, particularly with the national and international bicycle touring industry, the Friends of the Manchac Greenway requested the Southeastern Louisiana University Small Business Development Center to do an economic impact study for the Ring project (also attached). We believe seeing this project through would be a great economic boon for the Pontchartrain region.
