I know a lot of people in New Orleans work on weekends, so not everyone interested will be able to make those events. But there are plenty of other ways you can help!
Pretty soon I’m going to organize some evening mapping events – not quite sure when yet, but soon. I’ll post the dates and times as soon as I hammer it out.
Do you know your neighborhood by heart? I’ve met a few people who’ve lived here for decades that do. If so, I can e-mail or drop of maps and a key for you to fill out. I met this guy Louis who was able to map Treme from memory. If you’re like Louis, you help is needed!
Also, I can e-mail you sections to do in your free time. This would be SUPER helpful if you live in a neighborhood where there aren’t many bikers and it would be hard to organize events with enough people to knock out the entire neighborhood (Westbank, New Orleans East, Lakeview, etc.).
I always need help handing out flyers and I’m still in need of a poster. If you’d like to help design a poster or wouldn’t mind attaching flyers to bikes or dropping them off at businesses, that would be incredibly helpful. I can e-mail you a sheet to print yourself or give you already printed sheets and rubber bands.
Also, if you’d like to help organize the project and become more deeply involved, I will be doing a planning meeting not this coming weekend, but sometime next weekend. I was planning on doing a planning meeting/pool party…but my pool need some work so I probably won’t have anyone over until then.
