    A group of 4-5 retired Arizonans are planning a La Crosse – Milwaukee inn-to-inn trip this summer. You have a great system of bike paths, but need advice about the Reedsburg- Madison segment. Also any advice in general (best weather, scenic stops, cool coffee shops, etc). Jazz in Madison/Milwaukee? I have the Rail-Trails guidebook. (Is the Mid-Trail Motel in Wilton worthy?)

    I’m planning on commuting ~5 miles each way to YMCA from my home. I bought an electric assist bike and plan on avoid car usage for the 18 months of the EXERT Alzheimer’s Study I’m participating in at the UW – cutting down on pollution. So I want to keep updated on bicycle news in the City.

    I’d be happy to contribute a few articles to your Blog.

    I’ve spent a decade in bike shops and distributors. I’ve been everything from the Saturday boy at a shop, store manager, mechanic, bike fitter…

    Last 3 years I’ve been writing a lot in the cycling genre and right now I’m writing for

    Let me know if you’re interested and I will send you a few topics that I could write about

    While I agree with the Bike to Work Week concept, I am disappointed in the execution here in Madison. The set-up locations for the stations tend to cause congestion and even outright dangerous traffic situations for those not intending to stop at a given location. The Ian’s Pizza at Garver on Thurs afternoon was particularly poorly planned, as it was set up at a point with little space to either side of an already busy path, leaving commuters no choice but to dismount and shoulder through the crowds. This could have been easily alleviated by setting up 100 feet farther west, closer to the open spaces used in winter for the ice rink. Other sponsors should also be advised to consider traffic flow and avoid squeezing into places that force attendees to stop directly on the paths.

    As I mentioned briefly at the beginning, I very much believe in the concept, and we certainly do need to encourage more people to get on their bikes. You have built a fun and positive model—please keep up the good work, and please consider these needed changes.

    Good Evening!

    I am a teacher in a community-based learning program in Oshkosh WI. We have partnered with the City of Oshkosh to host a city-wide biking event. To prepare my high schoolers for this event, we examine the concept of bike-friendly communities. In the past, our class has visited Madison to get the feel and experience Madison. We rent bikes for 70 students and get immersed in the community. We are returning to Madison on May 1st. I reached to Peter Gray and he mentioned that Madison Bikes may be able to help. We would love our students to meet a bike enthusiast to explain Madison. We are also looking for a couple of people to lead us on a bike tour. Peter mentioned Harold Kliems and a few members might be willing to help. I am really hoping that your group could help our high schoolers.

    Madison currently has a job opening for a PEDESTRIAN BICYCLE ADMINISTRATOR! Applications are due 12/3/18 (6 days from now). This is something which would be valuable to send out to the Madison Bikes group.

    We will be biking from Freeport, Il. to Madison this week and are wondering how to locate the any bike repair facilities such as the “fixtation”. We would like to know where we can air our tires or any other maintenance that we may need. Are these located on a map? Any help would be appreciated and make our stay more enjoyable. Thanks,

    Hello! I was fortunate that Heather (board member) introduce herself to me on this morning’s bus ride (route 71) as I was discussing with the bus driver about permission to bring my folding bike onboard. This particular morning route that I pick up at University and Parks at 6:26 am, there are two individuals that catch the same bus that always have their bikes with them. Since the bike rack only holds two bike, I am unable to ever bring and place my bike on the rack. Since I invested in a folding bike, I was hoping to be able to bring on board since there are only a max of 10 people on this route at this time. The bus driver phoned in my inquiry this morning and got a response from the main office that I would NOT be able to bring my folded bike onboard. I have sent an email this evening to Metro Transit requesting permission for this particular route/time.

    I would like to see an exclusion policy that would permit folding bicycles on bus if rack is full and there is room. Currently, I’ve seen walkers, strollers, luggages, portable shopping carts, etc… permitted on bus. Why not a folding bicycle?

    Please help me on this mission! And would you believe that I ran into Heather again tonight on the ride home?

    Is there an organized Ride for Silence in honor of the Kalamazoo crash victims? I lived in Kalamazoo for many years and am still connected closely with the bike community there.
