The Tour de Troit offers several rides to choose from.

The first — and primary — is a leisurely ride of 30 miles with police escort on a closed route with sweeper- and SAG support. The 2013 map of that ride can be found here:

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 at least 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.
