Bike-us began in a hangover and became an event.

On Mardi Gras Day 2002 five friends who didn't want to deal with traffic, parking and swollen feet from walking took off from mid-city in costume and on bikes. At the next bar stop Susan and Russ were crowned Snow Queen and King Spyboy Bike-us the First. Everyone had such a hoot that fifteen friends asked to join in the next Mardi Gras. Rolling down St. Charles, back in the original uptown route, we were quite a sight with twenty folks in costume and on bikes. Folks began to cheer and we began to wave and call happy Mardi Gras and so it was happy. Someone in the crowd called out "Who are you?" Susan Cowsill called back, "We're Bike-us" and so we were and are, and the adventure continues.

A costume, a bike and the willingness to laugh all day are the simple requirements for rolling with Bike-us. Come with a smile and go with the flow.
