NolaCycle is a project aimed to create a high quality cycling map of New Orleans. Cycling maps include information beyond just streets and their names that benefits cyclists. In our map, we highlight the pavement quality, car travel speed, lane width, and special caution areas (busy intersections, man-eating potholes, or high accident areas). Volunteers help to collect this data by attending mapping events.
The information is then digitized to make a map of the data we collected to help cyclists - young, old, local, and tourist alike - navigate New Orleans.

Crtical Mass this Friday Night....and mapping events for this weekend

Critical Mass is a national event that happens the final Friday of every month across the world. Here in New Orleans we meet up at Jackson Square by the gates in front of St. Louis Cathedral around 6pm. Typically we hang out for a while and get the ride started between 6:45 and 7:00pm. It's always a good time and there is usually some after event of some sort. Everyone who loves to bike is welcome!

Also, don't forget about mapping events for Mid-City and the Audubon Park area of Uptown this weekend.
Saturday July 26th, 3pm - Banks of Bayou St. John (by Orleans Ave and Jeff Davis Hwy)
Sunday July 27th, 3pm - Audubon Park by the playground (near St. Charles)

Hope to see a lot of people out on their bikes this weekend!
