Urban Tourists

Thousands of cyclists turn off of Congress Street. They come from all over southeastern Michigan to participate in the Slow Roll, a weekly bike cruise that brings together a diverse crowd of bicycle enthusiasts who show up in droves every Monday night at a designated meeting place.

This event has caught fire since it's inception five years ago, and is becoming one of the crown jewels of what is happening in Detroit in the present. There is a small fee to participate, but it's well worth it for the feel-good experience of hanging out with thousands of like-minded people who gather for this weekly ride.
