The mission of the Tour de Troit is to promote and encourage bicycling and bicycle safety through education, public events, collaboration with community and government organizations and support for non-motorized infrastructure. The Tour de Troit, the city’s largest cycling event, raises awareness of biking as a mode of transportation and publicizes the growing greenways network in the City of Detroit and all of Southeastern Michigan. Tour de Troit also produces and supports other events that promote a healthy lifestyle and city, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Bike Ride, Rouge-A-thlon, PaczKi Run and Cycle Into Spring.
Start at Clark Park, and ride to the base of the Bridge for a ride across to Canada and back to the USA. This year's event we will be timing your climb to the top of the bridge!
