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!

New days for Loyola and Tulane events

I hope everyone had a safe trip home and there isn't much damage to anyone's home. I know a few people had some roof damage, but it looks like our city is in really good shape!

Tulane and Loyola don't start up school again until Monday, so it doesn't make much sense to do events this weekend. So next weekend we'll be on campus. This will hopefully give people time to come back, clean up their yards, see all their friends, and catch the Saints game tomorrow!

Saturday September 13th, 5pm - Loyola University at the Residential Quad bike racks. Mapping Uptown and Carrollton.

Sunday September 14th, 5pm - Tulane University in front of the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life (LBC). Mapping Uptown and Fontainebleau.

  1. Awww, I was so psyched up for having these in my backyard! Well I'll definitely be able to help with the Tulane mapping day.
