Greetings from the Motor City
 
Hi

I've been commuting by bike a few days a week to an OEM in Auburn Hills, Michigan. I live about 11 miles away in Shelby Township. I'm fortunate that I can take a rail-trail about halfway, then travel on the sidewalk the rest of the way. I've grown up here and I really love Southeastern Michigan, but I will admit that its not so biker friendly.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Technically I'm not supposed to welcome you, since I'm from OHIO but Woody Hayes is no longer with us :) Anyway, enjoy your time here at Bike Forums. It's treated me very kindly so far. If you really want to have some fun, visit the Foo forum. Alot of wacky fun stuff there.

Welcome to the Forums. I'm a native of the East Side of Detroit, and lived in Ann Arbor and learned to appreciate the cycling lifestyle there in the 1970's, so I always like to say Hi to Michigan cyclists. I was mostly a cycle tourist for a long time, including in Michigan and Ontario, and now a year round commuter and occasional centurian here in Boston.

I still ride in Michigan in Macomb and Oakland countieswhen we visit a couple times a year, and I did one ride through Sterling Heights, Utica and Shelby Township on a Sunday morning last year. BTW, what's an OEM?
