Bike the Bridge


Bike The Bridge is back for 2017! This is it -- your only chance to ride across the border! Please stay tuned for more details and registration!

Riders will gather in Clark Park in Detroit at 7 a.m. for packet pickup. At 9 a.m. sharp, the group will head to the Ambassador Bridge, ride across and back, then embark on a 20-mile ride through Detroit. 

After the ride, boxed lunch is included in the cost of registration. A meat, vegetarian and vegan/gluten-free option is available at registration.

Ride starts and ends at Clark Park in Detroit and is sweeper-supported. T-shirt included in cost of registration.

Advance registration is mandatory due to customs regulations. Enhanced drivers license, NEXUS or passport is required. Ride limited to 750 registrants.

BAG RESTRICTIONS: Bags are strictly regulated on the bridge. Only fanny packs and frame bags under 7L in size are allowed. No other bags are allowed, including baskets of any kind. Bags not approved include trunk bags, saddle bags(commonly referred to as a seat bag), bags with shoulder straps (including backpacks and hydration packs), panniers or bags that hang on the side of your bike, or covered baskets. If you bring a bag on the bridge it will be confiscated by Customs Police. Tour de Troit will not be responsible for any confiscated property. If you are unsure if your bag meets the criteria, do not bring it! These instructions are per the Bridge Company, the Port of Detroit and Customs, and are a stricter version of our requirements at the TDT.
