Cycling and Underground Railroad tours this weekend

    1. There are two Wheelhouse bicycle tours this weekend in UK which are both fundraisers for MTGA.

    The first is Saturday, July 9th at 1pm and its theme is the early cycling history.


    The second is on Sunday, July 10th at 1pm and will tour Underground Railroad historic sites.

    It was an important station on the Underground Railroad, and the final American stop prior to freedom across the River in Canada for many escaped slaves. We will visit the Underground Railroad memorial sculpture on the River Walk, historic Second Baptist Church, and the Underground Railroad Living Museum at the First Congregational Church.

    Fascinating! Would you happen to know what those early bike racks may have looked like? There are a few antique racks remaining outside West Quad on the UM Ann Arbor campus, but the building itself was only constructed in 1937.
