Roll Along the River Wyandotte, MI 5/1/2016 FREE!


This 20-mile recreational bike ride is FREE and open to all age groups and experience levels. Riders will begin at in Wyandotte, and continue up W. Jefferson Avenue, experiencing views of the Detroit River and the communities along it: Wyandotte, Ecorse, and River Rouge. The return route will take riders past the future site of the Fort Street Bridge Park in Detroit and Historic Council Point Park in Lincoln Park.

There will be regular stops along the ride for photographs and water. A cool-down after party with a DJ will be held at the Downriver Council for the Arts, 81 Chestnut St, Wyandotte, MI 48192, which is also the starting point for the ride. Storyteller Shannon Cason will host the after party, and there will be Lagunitas Beer, Jersey Giant subs and lots of great people!

The Downriver Delta is rich in history, from the time of Native American cultivation through the earliest European settlement, from the era of rum running to its heyday as the heartbeat of industry. Jefferson Avenue, once known simply as the River Road, is a former Indian trail that once connected farms and forests to the burgeoning settlement of Detroit. The Edmund Fitzgerald was built and launched here, and Great Lakes freighters are a regular sight along the river, as are great blue heron and (occasionally) bald eagles. The striking mixture of natural beauty and industrial might, small town charm and working-class pride, make this area distinctive in the region.
