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.

  1. Another upcoming November bike event is the Jefferson Parish third annual Tour de Jefferson on Nov. 8. This event is not free or in a convenient location, but hopefully it will help develop support for a bike path in Old Metairie.
