Detroit Rides!


Detroit may have been built around the automotive industry, but as the Motor City looks ahead on the road to recovery, its streets aren’t filling with cars, but motor-less, pedal-powered, two-wheeled machines. From manufacturers and mechanics to Monday night Slow Roll, Detroit’s becoming a bike town — and it’s just barely gotten rid of its training wheels.

Five years ago, Monday night in Detroit were just like any other, now they’re a celebration of cycling, community, and the city.
