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!

Bike buddy meetings EVERY Wednesday

The Iron Rail Book Collective is hosting another meeting about the bike buddy program on Wednesday the 22nd at 7pm. The meeting will be held to organize a bike-escort service for folks who don't want to ride home alone late at night.

The Iron Rail is located in the same warehouse as Plan B bike co-op at 511 Marigny St. in the Marigny.

There will be a meeting every Wednesday at 7pm from now on to work on this project.

I'm not involved in organizing the Bike Buddy program since I'm out of town, so e-mail or call the Iron Rail if you have questions.
