TOUR DE TROIT 2012 : SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 15TH
The 11th Annual Tour de Troit is a bike ride that rides some of the city’s historic areas, takes in many of its most breathtaking sights, and provides bicyclists a unique opportunity to legally (with police escort) “take over” the streets of Motown.
The Tour de Troit is offering riders two options. The first — and primary — will be a leisurely ride of 25-ish miles with police escort and road closures. The second option 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. RIDE YO BIKE
