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.

Please share you ideas for exclusive bike roads, lanes, pathes, and other facilities with us!

Hey Everyone! NolaCycle is going to have a meeting with some Big Shots from the city next week. We've been asked to talk about our project and share "big" ideas for bike facilities in New Orleans, especially exclusive bike roads (think the path along the lake shore in Chicago) and some ideas for general improvements and policies that the city could implement.

So if there is really anything bike-wise you'd like to see you want the city to hear about, e-mail and I'll work it into my presentation. But if you have any really good ideas for exclusive bike routes or new paths, that would is what I'm really looking to pass along.

Thanks for your suggestions!
