Cross-posting from mailing list to cover all bases:

I saw an email recently about buying some SurveyMonkey months for 2013 sticker design voting.  Sorry, I'm at work now, and don't have that handy, so, responding from memory.

I added survey/poll/vote capabilities to MassUp.us this year, after Survey Monkey proved disappointing and expensive on some WNBR polls.  Ultimately we used MassUp.us extremely successfully for the big date change poll and others.  It's super simple, handles validating and fraud checking, works from PC or smartphone, and outputs spreadsheet and analysis reports.

I've thrown together a sample using some sticker images from last year at http://MassUp.us/poll

If whoever's handling the vote planning would like to use that, just ask.  No charge.

Also, I've been shipping free stickers to cyclists since 2011.02 from the form at http://MassUp.us/stickers I'd be glad to add BW to the set, I just never got around to asking before.

Hey Julie...

Sorry I never got back to you on this.  I was healing last week.

I'll head this up.

amen!  I first read about winter biking in a cycling sisters listserve.

Comment by Anne B. on January 22, 2012 at 7:42pm

A big thank you to whoever gave a Bike Winter presentation at Logan Square Farmers Market in October 2009 (Gin?)- such a long time ago but it planted the seed in my mind that winter biking is doable and enjoyable. Even though it took me a few years to get really into it, I'm loving it so much now! Beats the gym any day. Also still using the fleece neck gaiter I got that day :)  BELATED THANK YOU!

There's a big polartec fleece sale on now at http://www.milldirecttextiles.com/

It's a good place to get really really nice fleece.
