"I took Clavey over the highway.  North side doesn't have an entrance to the highway.  Took the sidewalk there.  From there we head east, and cross over via the JCYS parking lot, through the small park there, onto a neighborhood…"

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.
