On Sunday, traffic on I-10 out of New Orleans was reportedely moving at 7 to 12 mph, which is about the speed a fit adult cyclist can travel the 80 miles to an evacuation center in Baton Rouge. The 20 mph winds out of the east make the trip a lot easier. A Random Newscaster said it took 3 1/2 hours to drive 45 miles in the evacuation from New Orleans. Cyclists speculate about how to evacuate by bike. Cycling Dude jokes about hurricane bike riding as an extreme sport.
