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.

Check out the blog for updates on the project, ways to get involved, and volunteer mapping events!

Planning meeting Wednesday at 7pm

If you're interested in getting more involved in the NolaCycle project beyond just attending mapping events, you are invited to a planning meeting on Wednesday at 7pm. I have some snacks and probably some beer too (if you bring some food too, we could turn it into a potluck!). If you'd like to attend, please e-mail at for directions.

  1. Great project! I thought you'd be interested in the cycling recreational map site I used when I lived in DC:

    New Orleans needs both recreational and commuting routes, so keep up the good work!
