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!

I think we need to recruit these kids for our bike buddy program


  1. Bicycle self-defense. You got to do what you got to do when you're a crew of trick bike riders (are those old-school bmx bikes?) up against an Asian mob.

    Ella sent me that. Pretty awesome, huh?

  2. i think i saw someone get smart like that at a foot-down once: they got disqualified from all contests for the rest of the night.
