Colin Hubbell Ride this Saturday, June 19th

The 2nd Annual Colin Hubbell Memorial Bike Ride takes place this Saturday, June 19th. It starts at 10 AM at Traffic Jam on Canfield at Second Avenue in Detroit’s Midtown area.

Ride organizer Brian Hubbell notes, “It’s a leisurely jaunt (about 13 miles) through Midtown, Wayne, Woodbridge, Riverfront (a Wheelhouse stop), Dequindre Cut, and then back through the Market and Med Center. Food and beverages (Yes, beer!) afterwards at the Traffic Jam.”

This is a fundraiser which in the past has benefited the Hub of Detroit and paid for new bike racks in Midtown.

There are additional details on the Detroit Midtown web site and you can register for the event on-line as well.

Hendrickson Video has an inspirational video about Colin and his huge contribution to Detroit’s reinvention.

There are also a couple photos of Colin (wearing a “Got Love” T-shirt) at a July 2004 Detroit Synergy coffee talk that discussed the future of biking in Detroit.
