This website is the home of Poky Pedaling Stevens Point. You’ll find lots of information about Poky Pedals and the Bike Fun we share. Explore the menu bar above to learn more.
On the blog pages, I will report lots of bikey stuff. Much will be specific to Stevens Point, some will discuss upcoming Poky Pedals, some will report on past Poky Pedals, some will share other Bike Fun I encounter on my own, and some will cover other topics that Poky Pedalers are likely to be interested in.
Who am I? My name is Bob Fisch, and I’m the Chief Bike Fun Officer of Poky Pedaling Stevens Point. As such, you can expect the blog to talk a lot about Bike Fun.
You’ll also discover there is a serious side to Bike Fun. Bike Fun thrives when our streets become safer for Poky Pedalers, when our traffic infrastructure provides quality facilities for people who choose a bicycle for transportation, and when our community understands that bicycles are a normal way to get from A to B.
So I’ll sometimes use the blog pages to inform Poky Pedalers about what is happening to make bicycling better. You’ll read bicycle news with local, state, and occasionally even national and international scope. This will help illustrate what is possible to improve bicycling in the Stevens Point area and will encourage us to ask ourselves, “Why not here?”
Of course, you are welcome to read as much or as little of all this as you please. I’ll create some blog categories to help you find the posts of most interest to you. You can find these category pages at the top of the sidebar to the right.
For those who want Stevens Point to follow the lead of other cities that are creating their own safe, comfortable, and convenient bicycle transportation network, I encourage you to click the Speak Your Poky link on the menu bar above. The information there will keep you informed about current local projects affecting our traffic environment. I will let you know about opportunities to express your opinions to project staff and elected leaders regarding the bicycle accommodations you want built.
I certainly want to hear from readers with constructive comments. I encourage you to e-mail any questions and comments to me using the form at the bottom of each blog post or on the Contact page. If I feel what you have to say is worth sharing, I’ll copy it into a future post.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to sharing Bike Fun with you.
