5th Annual Motor City Bike Ride

This Saturday the 5th Annual Motor City Bike Ride will take place on Belle Isle. Participants meet at Shelter 10 and ride at whatever level they are comfortable with. The athletic ride is 10 times around the island, which is a 50 mile ride. The casual ride is 5 times around the isle which is a 25 mile ride, and the family ride is one time around the island which is a 5 mile trip.

Check in for the event begins at 8 a.m. and it is $50 for adults and $25 for those under 18 years of age. There will be a yoga stretch class at 8:15 a.m. before the ride starts. The athletic ride will begin at 8:30, the casual ride at 9:30, and the family ride will begin at 10:30. When riders return at 11, there will be a picnic and a DJ to entertain participants. They will also have a special gift bag for all of those that pay to ride. All riders are required to wear a helmet and sunscreen and water bottles are recommended.
