South / Re: New Orleans to Venice in one day?
« on: April 22, 2011, 09:50:55 am »
I rode from the New Orleans airport to Port Sulphur in January, 30 miles short of Venice.  Incredibly easy exit from the airport to a riverside trail into NO - http://www.bikeaccess.net/bikeaccess/Articles_db.cfm?Search=%2BAirport%2C%2BUSA-Mid&Article=New%20Orleans%2C%20Louisiana

If you're starting at the airport, it's not reasonable to get to Venice in one day.  You'll slow down to navigate through NO, then wait for a ferry to cross the river to Gretna.  From there, the ride is a no-brainer on the shoulder of route 23.  Take 2 days and meet some people to understand the area.  You'll see levees on both sides keeping the Mississippi and Gulf out, learn about Katrina and BP.  Dull ride, interesting story.
