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!

There is also an Alley Cat Race starting in Washington Park on the 12th

Heads up, kids - I just learned there will be an Alley Cat Race on the 12th also.  It will be meeting up at Washington Park at 5:30 (get there early to register, but if you help map, we'll be done right around then).  The race is at 6:00.  It's a fundraiser for Food Under Claiborne New Orleans (Under Claiborne - as in Tent City).   Not sure who's organizing this one, but you can pick up flyers at the Iron Rail or Bicycle Michael's.
