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!

Tulane's Bike Shop is getting a permanent home!

Good news, Tulane kids - the Bike Shop is getting its own home!  
Phil Schapker, saving Tulane students money and time - one bike at a time.

"The bike shed, which will be located in the 6300 block of Willow Street, will be constructed by group members following a plan designed by an architecture student. According to Phil Schapker, the shed will give the shop a permanent location and allow for storage of repair tools and materials."

The bike shed will be open next semester.  In the mean time, if you're on or near campus and need some help, the shop will operate at its new temporary location and with expanded hours — outside of Le Gourmet on McAlister Drive on Sundays, 1–4 p.m., and Thursdays, 2–5:30 p.m. — through the end of this semester.
