Default Detroit to Windsor with a loaded bike

Does anyone have any 2009 experiences or tips?

I've heard of people being able to get a ride across the bridge via
the maintenace folks, even thought there's no official policy, and
I've heard of the Windsor buses allowing bikes, even though their
website says bike must be 'bagged.' Unfortunately, nothing I've seen
online pertains to this year's regulations and/or whims.

I'm not really familiar with the area (drove across at Port Huron
back in 2005), but maybe the truck ferry?

Thanks, but I asked them and they can't accomodate bikes. The only
chance there is to thumb a ride with a trucker, and considering the
hassle they get at the border as it is, it's a slim chance.

You could contact any local bicycle coalition. I noticed Washtenaw
Bicycle and Walking Coalition the other day, http://www.wbwc.org/.
From them you may find other bicycle coalitions. Anyhow, that's what
they do is lobby for bicycle access.
