The blogs are good way to keep track of local riders, regional bike news and events.

Writers will often do write-ups about local biking events, new routes, views, bike-checks or demonstrations.

    With Open Streets Detroit coming up on October 1 — a festival where 3.5 miles of Michigan Avenue and Vernor will be closed to all vehicle traffic and turn into a giant street festival — our host, Sven Gustafson, figured that this was the perfect time to check in with Lisa Nuszkowski. She is a wearer of many hats. Not only is she part of making the Open Streets Detroit event happen, she is the Founder & Executive Director of the MoGo Detroit Bike Share. Show highlights: The upcoming Open Streets Detroit this weekend [1m18s] (October 1) and all of the activities running from Beacon Park in downtown Detroit all the way through Southwest Detroit. We get an update on the Detroit bike share system, MoGo [8m54s] that has 430 bikes across 43 stations. MoGo Bike share will be offering free rides throughout Open Streets Detroit on October 1. [10m42s] How has education been going [12m01, and what about theft and other challenges? [18m49s] What about funding? How does that play into making the MoGo project more equitable? [19m58s] And the suburbs? It’s a real possibility. It’s a matter of funding (Editor’s note: MoGo is not a government service provided by the city of Detroit. It’s has a nonprofit structure).
