  1. Wish I’d run into you during my two-week stint in Detroit, though I was pleasantly surprised to get to know so many other friendly and avid cyclists.

  2. Wow – what a wonderful blog. Thank you so much for all the photos taken along the street of all the buildings in your travels. I am fascinated by them all (and I especially love your comments with each one.)
    .
    In addition to the buildings — can you take more pictures of all the people you see along the way. I think that would be a nice set of Detroiter’s.
    Best regards,

    PS – I was born and raised in Detroit – but now live in Columbus, Ohio.

  3. Great blog….I have been by so many of the places that you have on your site. Amazing in so many different ways.

    BTW – saw you did a ride out of Sunset Beach, NC. We have been vacationing there for 9+ years now and the area is awesome. Hope you had a chance to hit up Crabby Oddwaters or Little River.

    I will continue to enjoy the website.
    Thanks

  4. Great blog. I drive by some of these handmade signs all of the time, and they are very creative. Is there somewhere on your blog where you list them by general location? What areas do you generally cover?

  5. Some of the posts have little Google maps. I’m going to go back and do maps for all the rides. I’ll try and indicated where I’ve found the signs. (May take a little bit of time) The August 9 and September 20 rides have Google maps embedded in the posts. Just click on the link in the post’s copy.

  6. Arthur,

    Jeff at CE directed me to your blog. This is a great site. I have been riding through Detroit for the past four years. The Woverine Sports Club does a 60 mile loop through Detroit the third Saturday of the month. I am hooked .

    Here is a quote from Talking Head David Byrne describing a ride through Detroit; “I found myself riding through vast vacant lots, covered with grasses and some filled with rubbish. Once in a while there was evidence of some habitation , but mostly it was a post apocalyptic landscape at its finest. One of the most memorable rides I’ve taken.” I only share this quote with true believers. It really captures one of the reasons why cycling in Detroit is so interesting.

    I have a couple of questions to ask. Please emai me. Thanks.

  7. Let me be the first to say that I really like your blog. I’m also working on one myself. The link is posted on the reply.

    Since I work during the weekend, most of my riding consist of going to and from work, but when I need to get somewhere, my bike has been very reliable.

    I hope to post more pics in my blog now that I have good batteries in my camera.

    Feel feel to e-mail me, or leave a comment on my blog.

  8. Your “mystery theater” on Harper near Van Dyke was the Eastown.

    Interestingly, it was briefly used in the 1990’s for community childrens’ plays and other independently-stage, low budget events. It looked like it had been abandoned for 30 years even back then.

    I suspect “Gratoit” auto is a deliberate off-spelling. Years ago, there was an unrelated chain of auto parts stores called “Gratiot Auto Supply”, who could (I merely speculate) have raised trademark issues, similar to a car repair shop, Mansfield Auto, on the west side – they were forced to change their name to “Manfield” by a manufacturing company named Mansfield, even though the local repair shop was on Mansfield Avenue

  9. Arthur,
    The legal eagle and I are looking forward to training rides with you in preparation for our Erie Canal bike trip in June.

  10. i would love to talk with u guys when u decide to take another ride. I live in the neighborhoods that u guys write about. I am a african american that grew up in these areas that u guys highlight. I am tired of our city being so segregated maybe we could bring some more light to something of positivity. U never know what may come of our meeting

  12. Arthur,
    I love your blog and have missed your rides since last August. Will you be returning to the blogosphere with more rides?
