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!

NORTA should take a hint from Louisville and air some commercials like this!

NORTA needs to dump those stupid bike passes and have Lil Wayne preform an even better rap of how to use them.

Who knew anything good would ever come out of Louisville?  

(Just kidding, I have lots of friends who grew up there. It's a nice town. I love Kentucky. I also love this video!)

  1. i just moved back to NOLA after living 3 post-katrina years in louisville, and despite it being in kentucky, louisville is a pretty progressive city in a lot of ways... particularly when it comes to the city's support for biking. the mayor has seasonal family bike days/races, there's tons of bike lanes on major thoroughfares (with more being added all the time), and a pretty healthy cycling community there. NOLA has a long way to go to match them, but hopefully projects like yours will push that along. keep up the good work!
