"Yep, so if we had the opportunity to donate a million bucks to one pot of money or the other, would we want: -a million more of new bike lanes, or, -a million of maintenance/plowing/painting/sweeping of the existing bike lanes? "

"True, especially federal capital dollars have helped contribute to the build side, with the city footing the bill for the maintenance expense, such as it is.  What I'm getting at is we still have our own values/priorities as riders, all…"

"While it's an interesting gedanken experiment, I suspect the projects (build vs maintain) would be paid from different pots of money (capital vs expense)."

"This invokes an interesting question:  If CDOT somehow got an extra million dollars, would it be better if it was used to build a new bike lane - or - to maintain existing bike lane(s) for x number of months?  "

Hi Bob, I am considering applying to MBAC. I was wondering if you wanna grab a half hour lunch or a drink during a weekday this or next week... meet at a place at your convenience?

Hi. Thanks for the message. I think at this point I am bringing my bike, but I'd be interested in what you have as a loaner? Richard

Okay, thank you. Nancy

Bob,  I can live without most of the things Ghostery suppresses (facebook, twitter integration, tracker cookies, certain ads). And if I 'need' to see a particular component, I just add an exception.

I run Ghostery in combo with AdBlock Plus. I rarely see ads anymore.

Thanks for all the info- I'll let you know what I end up doing! Haven't been to Mackinaw since I was about 10 and all I remember is fudge and pony rides... :)

The messaging system on here is a bit odd...I think you have to friend someone before you can message them. But thanks for the trip advice! Looks like both MI-WI ferries are running this year so it's nice to have those options, though they are expensive:

Do you think it's worth it to buy/carry "Round Lake Michigan: A Bicyclist's Tour Guide"? I don't have a smartphone or garmin or anything so I thought the maps in here might prove useful.
