$5 per Gallon, Size Matters, Creating Jobs With Bike Lanes, One Killer Bike Rack–The Weekly Chatter

The Next Observational Walk

Next Thursday, January 27th at 4:30-pm is our next observational walk opportunity. We will meet at Cass St. and 8th to walk the length of Cass St. to 14th and then return north on Union St. The purpose of the walk is to walk along the streets to experience the place at the human scale and see how it serves people. Please, RSVP online or show up at 4:30 at Cass & 8th on Thursday.

Plug in where you can. Drinks likely to follow.

    There’s one of those racks in Ann Arbor, too, at the corner of Liberty and Fifth. Functionality-wise, it’s not bad, but I’d prefer if it presented a ninety-degree vertical surface for easy leaning from all angles.
