WHEELING ALONG: Six months after New Orleans' first bicycle lane was installed on St, Claude Avenue, Tulane University researchers found that the average number of riders per day there rose by 57 percent during two weeks in November 2008.

The report, published in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health, a peer-reviewed publication, suggests that bikes are "well-suited to New Orleans," said Kathryn Parker, the study's lead author. She is the assistant director of the Prevention Research Center in Tulane's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

Co-authors are associate professors Jeanette Gustat and Janet Rice.
