Tour de Troit Moves Cycling and Green Infrastructure Forward
Last year, more than 6,000 cyclists pedaled their way through the streets of Detroit in the state's largest annual cycling event. The tour is a great way to get people to explore the city by bike and promote non-motorized transportation. Beyond that, the event publicizes the growing greenways network in Detroit and throughout southeastern Michigan, and raises funds for greenway development in Detroit.
