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.

Upcoming mapping days - Algiers Point and City Park!

We have two upcoming mapping dates scheduled for January. We'll have some more dates coming up soon. We're getting really close to completing the map! We only have a few gaps left, so it's really important to come out and volunteer so we can get this baby out for the summer! So if you haven't volunteered before, now is the time to get involved.

Saturday January 17th, 2 to 3:30pm: City Park/Naverre/Lakewood
Meet in the park near the playground by Victory and Marconi.

Sunday January 18th, 2 to 3:30pm: Algiers Point
Meet at the grassy area around the Ferry Landing.
