Heather Haylett has joined the Bike Easy team as a volunteer through AmeriCorps. After graduating with a degree in Philosophy from the University of Idaho and visiting New Orleans several times, Heather decided to make a move to a city she loves. Heather has been riding bikes in an urban landscape since she was a child and believes that New Orleans is a perfect place to continue that tradition. As the Communications and Membership VISTA, Heather is excited to get to know the people of New Orleans and learn more about how it can be an inviting place to bike. She will be engaging with citizens and volunteers through informative content and hands on involvement. You’ll hear from Heather in social media posts and volunteer updates.

This September, Bike Easy and a large coalition of partners are working with the City of New Orleans to create Connect the Crescent – a connected, protected bikeway network in the heart of the city – showcasing a bold vision to improve biking, walking, and riding transit.
