Freestyle BMX World Champion moving to Detroit

Sunday, November 14th, 2010


Cory Coffey is moving to Detroit. According to Wikipedia, she’s “most notable for being the first female to perform a backflip.”

We learned about her move via the Urbane Life blog.

The majority of people I talk to think I am crazy for moving to Detroit.  I am thrilled to be part of The Make Shift and looking forward to each day.  While involved with this group, I will be working with a youth organization (suggestions are greatly appreciated), also will be involved in the Roosevelt Park Project, and starting up a business that can be a solid building block to the community.

My main focus in this blog will be highlighting the youth of Detroit, cafes, community, and what living in Detroit may look like for a transplant.

Naturally, we’re quite curious what that business might be and whether it’ll be somehow bike-related.
