Third Annual Detroit Bikes Pedal Cruise Saturday,8-20-2011, 9AM

sm-DetBks_logo.jpg

It's almost time for that annual north Woodward Avenue pagan festival, the
Woodward Dream Cruise! That means it's also time for the Third Annual Detroit
Bikes! Pedal Cruise Bicycle Ride! We're not anti-car; we're just pro-bicycles!
And many of us firmly believe that the best way to experience our City is on a
self-propelled vehicle! In fact, many if not most automobile manufacturers were
first bicycle builders.

The primary aim of the Pedal Cruise is to bike from our City's birthplace, the
Detroit Riverfront, to the world-famous (thanks to Eminem) 8 Mile Rd. (why isn't
it called 8 Miles Road?) and back. We will parallel as well as cross Woodward
Avenue, though only a modest part of the ride will take place on Woodward
itself.

We'll be starting our ride at 9 AM, which is a bit earlier than our normal
starting times. Starting earlier allows us to beat some of the mid-day heat, as
well as to finish in time to attend the Dream Cruise if you desire.


Length of ride: Approximately 30 leisurely miles (about 48 kilometers) if you do
the full ride.

Stops: Cultural and historic stops to include: Model T Heritage site, Piquette
Square Veteran's Housing, Henry Ford Home, Hart Plaza, Palmer and John R.
Community Garden, Michigan State Fair site (RIP), Palmer Woods (Romney home
site, also RIP), Palmer Park, and much much more!

Cost: FREE! But bring cash for refreshments at our stops!

Pace: Relaxed touring pace suitable for all!

Rain Date: NONE! The ride will go on regardless of rain, snow, Asian Carp
alerts, Kwame sightings (I think he's supposed to be in Texas), sinkholes,
mayfly infestations, or earthquakes.

Reservations: None needed! Just be there!

Helmets: Required
