Tour de Troit Ride
The 14th annual Tour de Troit was a success! Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and over 7,000 registrants in the 2015 ride!
The 15th Annual Tour de Troit, set for September 17th 2016, is a bike ride that explores some of the city's historic areas, takes in many of its most breathtaking sights, and provides bicyclists a unique opportunity to legally “take over” the streets of Motown. Check back soon for 2016 registration opening!
7,000+ riders enjoyed the 2015 ride! Check out this video!
The Tour de Troit offers two rides to choose from.
MAIN: The first — and primary — is a leisurely ride of 30 miles with police escort with sweeper- and SAG-support and one rest stop. The main ride will take off at 9 a.m.
METRIC: For extremely experienced cyclists, the Tour de Troit offers a metric century (62 miles) option that does not include police escort. Riders should be able to ride approx. 15MPH and be comfortable on city streets following the Rules of the Road. This ride is sweeper- and SAG-supported but intersections are not closed to traffic. The metric century ride is capped at 500. There are two rest stops for the metric century ride.
After the ride, all particpants will enjoy a meal provided by local restaurants and a couple of icy cold beverages as well as some music! There's a really festival-like atmosphere at Roosevelt Park, so plan on sticking around!
