Bicyclists have had a profound affect on the city of Detroit, our nation's transportation system and much more. Bicyclists led the fight for good roads. Bicycles played a key role in redefining women's role in society. And it was Detroit bicycle racers, mechanics and technology that spurred the creation of the auto industry. Todd Scott will share the stories: from the first Detroit bicycle ride in 1863 through the Golden Age of bicycling and to the transportation mode that quickly replaced the two-wheeled wonder.
