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!

Additional info about the Lafitte Corridor mapping events

Reminder: If you want to be a group leader, please meet us 30 minutes before the shift you signed up for starts. That's 9:30 am for tomorrow and 8:30 am for Saturday. The process is pretty easy, but we still need to a short time to train you on what we're doing.

Also, if you want to help update the road condition data NolaCycle collected for area (most of that was mapped between a 1 and 1 1/2 years ago), please bring your bike and a bag/backpack to carry the clipboard. For any shift with a large turn out, we'll send a few people out to do updates.

We will have some snacks, but remember to bring your own water bottle.
