From 500 riders in 2013 to 600 riders in 2014 Tour de Troit and Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative (DECC) enjoy another year of a great Cycle into Spring event. Cycle into Spring is the annual fundraiser for the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative that highlights the Connor Creek Greenway. This year’s event raised $4,000 to support Conner Creek Greenway development.
Tour de Troit, a nonprofit organization that produces cycling and running events to raise awareness about the benefits of pedestrian activities, including cycling, walking and running, hosted along with DECC the Third Annual Cycle into Spring event on May 10th, 2014. Six-hundred participates took part on a twenty mile ride from the Detroit River to Eight Mile, returning along the nine miles of cycling infrastructure that traces the original Connor Creek that links people, parks, green spaces, neighborhoods, schools and shops. Riders had the opportunity to view sites such as the Coleman A. Young International Airport, Mt. Olivet Cemetery, the Milbank Trail, the Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly Plant and Chandler Park.
Join us for the 2015 Cycle into Spring ride, May 9th.
