Detroit, MI (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Tour de Troit (TdT) 2013 is kicking off this Saturday, September 21st. Bicycle Accident Lawyer Sean Murphy will be participating in this year’s main ride to help encourage safe bicycle riding and awareness. “I’m really excited to be riding in Tour de Troit this year,” said Murphy. “It is an excellent opportunity for bicyclists to experience Detroit and to promote bicycling as an alternative form of transportation while raising money to make Detroit a safer place to ride.”
TdT is a bike ride that explores historic Detroit neighborhoods; allowing bicyclists to take over the city! Last year, the ride had over 5,000 cyclists; TdT is predicting over 6,000 riders this year.
There are two rides to choose from: the main ride is a leisurely 30 mile ride with a closed route and police escort. For more experienced riders, there is a metric century (62 mile) ride that does not include a police escort.
After the ride, participants can enjoy food provided by local restaurants, drinks and music at Roosevelt Park.
