Ride your Bike to the Ball Park

This Sunday, April 22nd is the Detroit Tiger’s Ride your bike to the Ball Park day. Tickets for this event are on sale only until midnight tonight.

The Changing Gears web site posted this article about the event as well as cycling in Detroit.

The team is hosting its first Ride to the Ballpark event, testing its theory that baseball fans and bicyclists are one and the same.

“Detroit has a very cool, strong cyclist culture,” says Eli Bayless, the Tigers’ director of promotions and in-game operations.

The Tigers are offering a $14 package that includes an upper deck ticket to the game, and a ticket for a bicycle valet. Cyclists will pull up to Columbia Plaza in front of Comerica Park’s Gate A entrance, and check their bikes.

Of course you can ride to the ball park any day. On Sunday, you just won’t be able to use the valet parking without this special ticket.

There are bike racks located in the parking lots near the northwest corner of the ball park.

Group rides to the Game

There are three group rides planned to the ballpark.

As Bayless told Changing Gears, they’re hoping this will become an annual event and spur the organization to do more to accommodate cyclists.
