About the event

Join Tour de Troit in a cycling celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. This is a free ride, but registration is required. Families are encouraged.

The ride will take off at 10 a.m. and will begin and end on the campus of Wayne State University. After the ride, hot chocolate will be served. The route is approximately 10 miles and will take in several historical sites relevant to King and other local activists that were integral to the 1963 March to Freedom and the impact of the "I Have a Dream" speech delivered at Cobo Arena afterwards.

The mission of the Tour de Troit is to promote and encourage bicycling and bicycle safety through education, public events, collaboration with community and government organizations and support for non-motorized infrastructure. The Tour de Troit, the city’s largest cycling event, raises awareness of biking as a mode of transportation and publicizes the growing greenways network in the City of Detroit and all of Southeastern Michigan. Tour de Troit also produces and supports other events that promote a healthy lifestyle and city, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Bike Ride, PaczKi Run and Tour d'Eastside.
