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!

Goodier Bike Protection Bill Passes Senate

Shortly before 12:30 today, the Louisiana Senate voted unanimously to pass the Colin Goodier Bike Protection Bill (HB 725). According to the Louisiana Legislature's website, the bill has returned to the House without amendments from the Senate.

We'll update you all later today on the the final steps before the bill heads to Governor Jindal for his signature. Also check back for an update on the Complete Streets Study Resolution (SCR 110).
