Route 50 is devoting tons of ink (well, bandwidth) to Detroit's resurgent bicycle culture. With Tour de Troit boasting an unprecedented 7,000 riders, we're wondering if the Motor City will be a motorless one someday. Not if winter, sprawl and I-75 have anything to do with it, but the Route 50 piece has some interesting ideas about how Detroit is becoming bike friendly, and what the future holds for cycling in the city. Given that Live Cycle Delight was this year's Hatch Detroit $50K prizewinner, we'd say Route 50 is onto something.
