Proceeds From Tour de Troit Help Pay for Permanent Changes in Detroit
Even better, Tour de Troit helps finance new, permanent bike infrastructure in cash-poor Detroit. According to the above video, the ride has provided $160,000 for new bike lanes and other bike improvements in the Motor City. If it weren’t for supportive private players like this group, Detroit would not be on track to add an impressive 50 miles of bike lanes this year.
In the words of several tour participants: “Keep doing it!”
