Tour de Troit 2013
Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
Detroit, United States
The 12th Annual Tour de Troit, set for September 21, 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. Last year’s ride attracted 5,500 riders!
This event can and will sell out -- a necessary precaution to ensure the safety of all riders, as well as a good time! Please note the following pricing schedule:
EARLY BIRD - Through May 31 - $40/$35 (student) w/t-shirt
June 1 to August 31 - $45/$40 w/t-shirt
Sept. 1 to Sept. 10 - $55/50 w/t-shirt
ONSITE (if available) $65 w/t-shirt (size not guaranteed)
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.
For extremely experienced cyclists, the Tour de Troit offers two metric century (62 miles) options that do not include police escort. One is for riders that pace at 16 to 20 miles per hour; the other is for riders that pace at 12 to 16 miles per hour. Both metric century rides will be capped at 250 riders.
In consideration of all riders and volunteers, we ask that metric century participants be in good training and in possession of a road bike or extensively ridden hybrid before choosing one of the metric century rides. Similarly, we implore registrants to be as honest as possible when choosing the pace of their ride. Exaggerating your speed does no one any good and, in fact, can be dangerous to a group ride.
All rides will be sweeper- and SAG-supported.
The main ride will take off at 9 a.m. Registration will open at 7:30 a.m.
The metric century 12-16 will take off at 7:00 a.m. and the metric century 16-20 will start at 8 a.m. There will be no day-of registration for the metric century rides.
Start times are subject to change at the discretion of the city of Detroit. All registrants will receive notice if a start time changes.
There will be advance packet pick-up; details TBA to all registrants.
After the ride, there is food, drink and music at Roosevelt Park in the shadow of the Michigan Central Station!
Please take a moment to confirm your ticket purchase as registration is non-refundable and non-transferable.
