Detroit Criterium in Downtown is tomorrow!

From bagels to bike racing, Detroit is getting a Do It Yourself reputation — at least in the media.

The Detroit News is reporting on tomorrow’s bike race in Downtown Detroit.

Downtown Motor City hosts its first bicycle race in more than 20 years Saturday with Criterium Detroit City, which is expected to draw at least 1,300 and is the latest example of a young Detroiter fusing D.I.Y. energy with corporate backing.

Criterium is the brainchild of 28-year-old Erika Fulk, who was tired of defending Detroit to non-Detroiters.

“I did it mostly out of spite,” Fulk said. “This is my city ? come and see it. You’ll see how amazing it really is.”

More details about the race — whether you’re participating or spectating — are on their Criterium Detroit web site.
