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.

New DIY maps posted!

I've FINALLY updated the DIY site today! I posted maps from the 7th, 8th, and 9th Wards that need to be completed. If you have some time and would like to do these on your own time, you can download the maps of your choice from the website. Fill them out and then scan and e-mail them back, or e-mail me for my mailing address and do it that way.

Doing DIY maps is really helpful for use since sometimes events get rained out, there's a spontanious second-line and no one shows up, or I forget there is a Saints game that day. All types of crazy stuff happens and neighborhoods don't get completed on their assigned mapping event days.
