Bike to Work on May 20

The annual event promotes health, wellness, and cycling

Michelle & Chris Gerard

Detroit's 11th annual Bike to Work Day is this Friday, May 20. This year's ride should be one of the biggest, and hopefully, it shouldn't be raining.

The event begins with morning group rides starting in the suburbs and converging Downtown at the Spirit of Detroit statue. There are also two pit/end stops in Midtown. Sponsors are also providing free snacks and coffee at these locations. All three locations are open from 7am to 10am:

  • Spirit of Detroit on Woodward at Jefferson. Free bike parking will be provided by Wheelhouse Detroit from 7am to 6pm.
  • Old Main at Cass and Warren hosted by Wayne State University
  • New Center Park at Second and W. Grand Boulevard hosted by Henry Ford LiveWell

Event sponsors include Henry Ford LiveWell, the office of Detroit Council member Scott Benson, American Cycle and Fitness, Blue Cross Blue Shield Active Blue, KIND, Miller-Canfield, Wayne State University, and Wheelhouse Detroit.
