Announcing a new Meetup for Ann Arbor Adventure Club!
What: Tour De troit
When: Saturday, September 24,[masked]:00 AM
Where: Roosevelt Park
Detroit, MI 48216
The Tour de Troit, set for September 24, is a bike ride that explores some of the city’s historic areas, takes in many of its most breathtaking sights, and provides bicyclists a unique opportunity to legally “take over” the streets of Motown. Last year’s ride attracted 3,400 riders!
July registrations are at a reduced rate. Register EARLY -- the ride can, will, has, and does sell out, and registration fees will go up August 1st. This is a necessary precaution to ensure the safety of all riders, as well as a good time!
The Tour de Troit is offering riders two options. The first — and primary — will be a leisurely ride of 20-25 miles with police escort and road closures. The second option, new this year, is intended for extremely experienced cyclists. It is a metric century (62 miles) that will not include police escort. Both rides will be sweeper- and SAG-supported and will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Roosevelt Park, located at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and 14th Street.
After the ride, there is food, drink and music at Roosevelt Park in the shadow of the Michigan Central Station!
