Hi Julie Are you going to do the Apple Cider next Sunday in MI ?   I went last year and rode 55 miles.  It is very beautiful.  I am looking to car pool with someone and can pitch in for gas.  Do you know of anyone who may be going ?  If so, can you please email me   It is the 25th - next Sunday.

Hi Julie.  I am going to cycle the Horsey 100 event in KY this memorial day weekend.  It is a 5 hour drive.  Very beautiful country side.  You have the option of cycling 35, 50, 75. or 100.   Interested in going !  Check it out on line, and let me know.    Stephanie

In long projects that extend beyond one persons (or two peoples) tenure one of the most important decisions is to make sure the next person to carry the torch is up to the task. In this with Yasmeen you 'picked good', she's proactive and involved and will hopefully carry on making the lives of Chicago cyclists better just as you did.  Thank You.

Congratulations on the baby, ten fingers and ten toes and built in toe clips is all it takes.

Thanks/Good luck.

Edit: I posted a version of this before and wondered "what does that little 'x' do?" and apparently it deletes ones own comment.  Rewrote as best I could.

Good luck and best wishes, Julie, in your future.  i know you'll only be off the bike temporarily and we'll see you on the road again.  Maybe with a baby carrier and it won't be long before that isn't necessary.


Thank you for all you've done for the Chainlink!

Would you happen to have some time to talk about using ning's platform for the chain link? 

I'm looking into it as a possible tool for bike advocacy in Pittsburgh. / unicyclemike elsewhere on the inter webs.

Dear Julie,

I was looking at Craigslist and notice that someone listed over 100 bikes 312/709-2400.  Is this a shop?  That's a lot of  bikes.

Dear Julie,

Adam Clark and I were having a talk about where stolen bikes go...I do a bit of metal scraping and see the pick up trucks with walkers, refrigarators, etc and bikes.  But I don't think those guys are into stealing bikes off the street.  I have yet to really ask any one of them directly, but they do clean out basements, warehouses spaces, old houses - we had one poor goy help us remove my mom's old, old stove down a porch and into his old truck.   They don't want to go to jail.  Anyhow - just thinking where they go and who's supporting their theft.

Hi, Julie - we looked for you at the Bike to Work Rally - I must be going blind.  

I had the orange flag and caution/danger streamers on my trailer, I was hard to miss.

Hi Julie - Your Dad is great !  I worked for the Noskins for many years as a dental assistant and we sent a lot of referrals to your Dad for oral surgery.  I did my CPR Training at his office in Skokie.  I love to bike, yet can't make the one downtown.  Unfortunately, I do not own a bike rack for my car.  I would love to do a ride up to the Botanic Gardens in Highland Park sometime.  I live in West Rogers Park.  Are you interested? Let me know.  I love to cycle.  I have A Road bike.

Hi Julie, Where is this event? Are you related to Dr. Bruce Hochstadter by any chance?

Hi Julie, We will have a metal smithing / lug cutting art class at the Oak Park Arts League on Chicago Ave. Their Schedule is coming out soon. I will keep you updated

Hi Julie

Could I talk to you about bike mirrors for The Chainlink? We can make custom logo'd bike mirrors for you. Here's more info about our mirrors. They are made in the USA. They are very sturdy and stay adjusted. A Chainlink logo would look really cool on them. Call me 630-292-0044 or email me at if you're interested. Thanks....Rich Scott
