NolaCycle wins the Crescent Fund (along with 2 others)!

Crescent Fund Update:


Thanks to everyone who voted for us! We’re really excited to get this cash infusion so we can move forward with getting incorporated as a non-profit and putting money towards the printing! Look for a “Bike to the Market” map in the summer on Market Umbrella and Crescent City Farmers Market’s websites!

Meeting with the City Update:

Also, our meeting with the city folks I was talking about should be happening soon! I’m pretty excited about that. I’ve had some really great conversations with people over their bike facilities desires for the city.

I think the next step after this is maybe to have a New Orleans Cyclists Round Table event where we can get everyone working on advocacy in the same room and work on some common goals. I feel like people working in direct action (bike co-ops, event organizing), policy recommendations, and policy making aren’t really communicating that well. I try to bridge that gap as much as possible, but it’s amazing to me who doesn’t know each other here. While we all like promoting cycling in different ways, I think we could all work together to achieve our common goals faster.

Nicole from MBC and I were talking about maybe hosting a big social event just to get people introduced to one another before we start working on well, work. Hopefully we can get that organized over the summer when I get back in town (which will be mid-June/early July).
