Hergert Numbers at MoMath!

Hergert Numbers may not be in the Museum of Math just yet, but we're knocking on the door! Here we have #1 Hergert Numbers fan Elizabeth Meena spending a few days in New York City and taking the time to stop by the Museum of Mathematics to show her HN pride. I can't think of a better place to "spread the word"!

Hergert Numbers on LSD!

I participated in the Bike the Drive event in Chicago where 22,000 cyclists took to a 15-mile stretch of Lake Shore Drive (a.k.a. "LSD"). It was closed to car traffic from 5:30-10:00am and you could ride up and down the lake shore as many times as you wanted (or could) during that time. I managed one complete circuit of the route which calculated out to about 33 miles including riding between the event and the train station.

They had three rest stops fully stocked with complimentary snacks & drinks for the riders. They also had roving bike techs to help anyone with breakdowns along the way. The event benefits Active Transportation Alliance which advocates for better biking, walking, and mass transit options in the Chicagoland area.

I had a great time and will definitely be back again next year!

Hergert Numbers at the 40th IMACC Conference!

John Gaudio of Waubonsee Community College (retired) proudly wore his Hergert Numbers shirt on Friday of the 40th Annual IMACC Conference at the Allerton House in Monticello, IL. There were a couple t-shirts given away at the raffle, so I'm hoping to get some fresh pictures from some new folks.
