This unsupported, adventure ride around Lake Pontchartrain, starts and ends just behind City Park's New Orleans Museum of Art.

Heading East, the group circles the Lake counter-clockwise. Flag drops on Chef Menteur Hwy at the stoplight of Michoud Blvd. This year's ride will contain 6 mandatory stops, 5 of which will be completely unmanned. First is the Rigolet's Bait Shop with a left on Old Spanish Trail/433 immediately after. Second, the Tammany Trace Tunnel, where riders will be turning on to Florida St/Hwy 190. After a long stay on Hwy 22, riders will stop at the ONLY supported checkpoint in Ponchatoula presented by Palmares Cycling.

After this "halfway" point riders will continue down the longest and most taxing portion of the NOMA route, Old Hwy 51. Hwy 51 will take riders South, almost all the way to the Mississippi River, parrallel to Interstate 55. 

The fourth mandatory stop, Montz Park, is intentionally on the West side of the Bonne Carre Spillway. Riding or walking across the Spillway is mandatory. Unlike previous years, riders will not be allowed to use Airline Hwy on their way back to New Orleans. This stop is the first of 3 checkpoints along the Mississippi River Trail. ?
The fifth and sixth checkpoints are under the two bridges along the Mississippi River. First, the Hale Boggs Memorial Bridge in Luling, LA, and second, the Huey P Long Bridge near Elmwood.
