Bicyclists ride to Angola to support families of Louisiana's prisoners


At 8 a.m. today, more than 50 bicyclists pedaled from the steps of the New Orleans Police Department headquarters to make the nearly 200-mile trek to the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.*It's the fifth annual bike ride for Nola to Angola, which gathers riders to support the Cornerstone Builder's Bus Project ? and it's the group's largest ride yet.

Since 2007, Cornerstone has provided free monthly 55-passenger bus rides to families of incarcerated people, keeping intact communication between people imprisoned throughout the state ? which has the highest per capita incarceration rate in the world ? and support on the outside. Making long trips to visit incarcerated family members often is cost prohibitive for many families in the state, and Cornerstone aims to ease that burden.?
