C. Rae Says: I had a wonderful time riding my bike through east side, downtown and midtown Detroit last summer. I hit the streets about three times per week and averaged between 15 and 25 miles per ride. Some of my favorite sightseeing and resting spots are Indian Village, the Riverwalk, Campus Martius, Greektown, Lafayette Park, Corktown, Cass and Willis, WSU, Eastern Market and Historic Elmwood Cemetery. Also, one of the fun aspects of bike riding in Detroit is the Dequinder Cut as it provides a direct route across the downtown area and is a safe and speedy run. I look forward to doing it all again next summer.
