Last Saturday’s Tour de Troit bike ride in Detroit was a huge success, thanks in part to some wonderful September weather.  There were 1,100 registered riders this year, about 500 more than last year.

As mentioned earlier, this annual ride is a fundraiser for the Corktown-Mexicantown Greenlink.  This year $10,000 $12,000 was raised.

Thanks to all who participated, sponsored, or volunteered — helping make this fundraiser possible.

There are some great photos on-line here and here.

    Awesome! I can’t say how good it makes me feel to see that the tour has grown in size the way that it has. I am truly stunned by 1100 registrations. It has certainly come a long way from the 50 riders we had in 2002. Kudos to the organizers!
