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.

Mapping with Rubarb Tomorrow

NolaCycle is rollin out to the Upper 9th tomorrow to help the kids at Rubarb map their neighborhood.  Rubarb is a community bike shop that specializes in kids' build-a-bike programs. Liz and all the good folks down there teach the kids how fix broken bikes so the kids in the neighborhood can have bikes of their own.  

Rubarb is located at 3501 N Miro St in building in the parking lot behind St. Mary of the Angel's Church (it's actually closer to the intersection of Tonti and Gallier than Miro). We'll be out there from about 5pm to 6 or 7pm.
