Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! There will be many opportunities to honor and celebrate Dr. King's life and legacy, for example the Madison-Dane County King Holiday Observance on Monday or the UW's events on January 22. Otherwise things continue to be rather quiet.
Last week the Madison Bikes Events Committee met to nail down further details of the upcoming Winter Bike Week. Winter Bike Week will take place from February 2nd to 9th. A lot of details are still being finalized -- RSVP on the Facebook event page to receive the latest updates, or regularly check back on our website: http://www.madisonbikes.org/winterbikeweek
Some good news for people wanting to bike around Lake Mendota: The county acquired a property that will become part of the planned bike trail around the northwest side of the lake. The massive planned expansion of Highway M, from two to four lanes, in that same area is less good news.
The only two events on the calendar for this week is Madison Bikes Advocacy Committee meeting on Wednesday.
And on Saturday, Madison Bikes board member Baltazar is hosting the Tour de la Familia Latina - Winter Tour of the Latino Family.
