1 – About NolaCycle

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 either by attending mapping events or doing it on their own time with NolaCycle DIY maps. Lauren (and possible other team members too) will then begin creating a digital map with all the data. By late spring or summer of 2009, we will have a FREE map available in both print and online 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!
