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.

What's done, what we're mapping soon

So I didn't do anything fun tonight and made this map of everything we've mapped so far and then I spent over an hour on the phone talking friends into hosting events at their houses or at work.

Days on the map are WRONG, but the dates are right. I need to stop doing stuff at midnight when I'm mentally exhausted. Anyway, I'll fix it later.

Alright, so this what you really need to know - there will be AFTER PARTIES when we map this Saturday (Irish Channel, Garden District, etc.), next Saturday (7th Ward), and on the 24th (Riverside). You're going to have to come map if you want to know the location (mainly because I don't want to give away addresses online).

On a sad note, my pool is still green. On a good note, there is a big show at Tipitina's Saturday night, so we can go to that around ten.
