Cycle Into Spring

Online registration is now closed. Please register in person at packet pick-up or the morning of the event!

Join the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative and Tour de Troit for the 5th Annual Cycle into Spring!

Enjoy a pleasant pedal from the Detroit River to Eight Mile and back along the Conner Creek Greenway (CCG), nine miles of cycling infrastructure that traces the original Conner Creek and links people, parks, green spaces, neighborhoods, schools and shops. Eight miles are complete and the funds raised at Cycle into Spring will support programming and the development of the final miles of the greenway.

The 20-mile ride will begin at 9 a.m. and is police-escorted as well as sweeper and SAG-supported. Sites along the way include Coleman A. Young International Airport, Mt. Olivet Cemetery, the Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly Plant and Chandler Park.

A t-shirt is included with all pre-registration; size not guaranteed after April 17. Refreshments provided at rest stop.

An optional lunch catered by Slow's To Go (meat) or Organaman (vegetarian and vegan/GF)  is available after the ride.

Cycle Into Spring costs $30 for just the ride or $40 for the ride + lunch. Non-riders are able to register for lunch only for $15.

Packet pick-up and day-of ride registration is available for $40; t-shirt not guaranteed; lunch not available for purchase. Residents of CCG-adjacent zip codes (48213, 48214, 48215, 48205, and 48234) can register day-of for $25!
