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 collectedto 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!

Anything I might have been planning to organize with NolaCycle for the weekend of the 10th will be delayed. I'm going on vacation! Thank you, Pensacola, for giving me a totally awesome way to spend the weekend before I start work.
There will probably be a good group of New Orleans people going to Pensacola that weekend. Usually a handful of the N.O. Bike Polo folks go to these events and I have a 3-bike truck rack, so I'm sure you can figure out a way to get there if you don't have a car. The New Orleans Bike Forum is a good way to keep up with what's going on regionally (Memphis, Baton Rouge, Pensacola, etc.), but make sure to put in your name and location and such when you join because they've been getting a lot of spambots making profiles. The moderators had to start requiring approval of members to cut down on this.
You can view our data map online! The NolaCycle Bike Map website is still in beta stage, but it's coming along nicely! If you see something that is entered incorrectly or would like to help with data entry, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
