You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
This photo was taken by one of my colleagues who was attending an event at the Globe Building, now known as the Outdoor Adventure Center. Inside, the Governor, Mayor, City Council, members of the media, etc. were attending an event where the Governor announced the "Grand Bargain" deal which pooled philanthropic and corporate donations, alongside state money, to fund the shortfall in retiree pensions that are in jeopardy since the city filed for bankruptcy.
Congratulations, Icrontic! We photo-bombed the Govnah!
The route map is up! You can also view the map on your phone with the Bikemap app.
Points of interest:
-Belle Isle State Park
-Iron St. Gallery
-Mt. Elliot Park (New)
The total mileage is 14.5, and we will pace at around 8-10mph. We have plenty of time to finish the route, so there will be time for breaks and such. The total cycling time should be no more than 1.5 hours, which gives us about 30 minutes for breaks and stopping.
Bring clothes that you are OK with getting wet in. The forecast is calling for drizzle in the morning, and rain in the afternoon. Also, there will be other opportunities to get wet along the way, including the new splash park at Mt. Elliot Park. The ride should be over by noon for those playing Giant Catan. Hopefully we will avoid most of the rain, but we have you covered if it gets too bad. Temperature should be in the low 70s, which is absolute perfect riding weather.
This will be a continuation of last year's street art tour, with the addition of Detroit's riverfront parks, including Belle Isle State Park (Same island, better management!) Mt. Elliot Park, and Milliken State Park.
I'll have a payment page up tonight for bike rental. We get a discount after 8 bikes, and it looks like we'll have at least that amount, so I will factor that into the price.
