Tour de Troit

We saw proof Thursday that Detroit is a bicycle-friendly city.

We saw proof Thursday that Detroit is a bicycle-friendly city.

(Detroit, Michigan) Last year more than 7,000 cyclists toured the Motor City on two wheels for the day.  Today, Saturday, September 17, 2016, Natalie’s Giant road bike, Grane, may well be one of the bikes being ridden on a 30-mile tour of Detroit featuring historical markers. She sold her beloved road bike to our summer neighbor Mark Rosen, who hails from the Detroit area, this past summer when she decided to opt for a more comfortable bicycle, and Mark assured us he would be riding Grane around Detroit every chance he gets. So we well expect Mark to be out there today enjoying the company of thousands of other cyclists as they see proof that Motown is definitely on the ascendancy. We were in Detroit Wednesday and Thursday and thought of joining them all today, but we wanted to get back and ride our own roads of Berrien County. But we’ll be thinking of our fellow cyclists in Detroit today.  Ride on, Mark and Grane!  (The Tour de Troit starts at  9 a.m. at Roosevelt Park and tickets are $60.  Visit: http://www.tour-de-trout.org for more information)

A sight for cyclists in downtown Detroit.  Stay tuned for more photos from our recent trip to the Motor City.
