For learning how to fix your own bike, Ann Arbor's own co-op, Common Cycle, is a fantastic resource. Open Sundays 11-3 at 416 W Huron.
Spent the morning volunteering as a mechanic for the first time.
Observations: if you get there at 11 it's pretty quiet. After 12:30 and you might have to wait.
Cool group of people there!
Ann Arbor is soliciting your opinions on whether to spend money, and if so how to spend it, to become a place where "chugga chugga" is not followed by "choo choo"
Went to the Washtenaw Bike Summit today. We had a good break-out session on planning fun family-friendly rides so look for that in the future, fellow bike riders with kids.
Also was nice to see City Council Members there - CMs Griswold and Nelson both showed up, Griswold stayed the whole time so major props to her.
Wonder if I should query the DDA about setting up a micro Park in September for #parkingday or just do it and see what happens.
I just went over the City of A2 parking ordinance and I don't see anywhere it requires a car to be parked in the spot.
Anyone up for Park(ing) day this year?
Don't get me wrong, I like cars. I drive a car sometimes. Some of my friends drive cars.
But cars have no place in our cities on the roads.

All you garage shop guys: don't necessarily need to put in insulation if you're planning to rely on a radiant heater. For occasional use, insulation will be poor payback and minimal effect if the space is unheated most of the time.
(Kinda like keeping a winter coat on a clothes line outside and then putting it on. It's not going to be warm.)
Also, you're making me feel like I'm not keeping up adequately...
At work: Oncology. In my free time: riding and fixing bikes, taking photos. (Not much free time as a father of two)
